  1. 1. FACTS & FIGURES INLAND NAVIGATION IN EUROPE
  2. 2. WATERWAYS IN EUROPEEU Waterways  40,000 km  ½ accessible to ≥ 1,000 tonne vessels  18 out of 27 EU Member States have navigable waterwaysEU Roads  4,800,000 kmEU Railways  200,000 kmWaterways elsewhere  USA 42,000 km  Russia 85,000 km  China 121,000 km
  3. 3. SAVING ENERGY & CARBONSaving energy & carbon 0.25 MJ/TONNE-KM 30 CO2 PER TONNE-KM  CO2 emissions and fuel consumption by inland ships are just one third of those for road bound trucks. 0.8 MJ/TONNE-KM 150 CO2 PER TONNE-KM
  4. 4. HISTORIC ADVANTAGEPlenty of waterborne trade opportunities  Most people in EU live near coast or in main river valleys.
  5. 5. NO TRAFFIC JAMSSlower but reliableRotterdam  Duisburg 24 hoursParis  Le Havre 40 hoursBasel  Antwerp 48 hoursLyon  Marseille 24 hours
  6. 6. RIVER INFORMATION SERVICESOldest means of transport using newesttechnology  Modern traffic management systems  Swift electronic data transfer between water and shore  In-advance and real-time exchange of information
  7. 7. A VESSEL FOR EVERY LOADFrom containers to liquids to bulk goods, there isa ship to carry it  An average ship can take 200 truck loads  The inland shipping fleet in EU counts around 12,850 vessels
  8. 8. DIRECT JOBSA growing jobs market  Inland shipping creates 40,000 jobs onboard “and more to come”  Job opportunities on board and ashore 40,000 JOBS
  9. 9. WATERWAY GEOGRAPHYStrong in navigable regions  Low transport share in EU27  BUT, up to 40% in hinterland of major seaports
  10. 10. TRANSPORTED GOODSAll types of cargo  Ca. 500,000 tonnes per year  After bulk consumer goods go increasingly by water  Container market will double by 2020
  11. 11. PROMINENT USERS
  12. 12. SEAMLESS EUROPEAN WATERWAY NETWORKRealising the waterways’ potentialwith the EU Naiades Action Plan  Streamlining waterway transport  Removing barriers
  13. 13. TRAFFIC DENSITY 2007
  14. 14. FORECAST 2025
  15. 15. NATURALLY MULTIMODAL
  16. 16. CONNECTING EUROPECongestion-free links between Europe’sports and industrial centresMajor economic centres will beconncected by three new links: Antwerp-Paris (completion 2018) Rhine-Mediterranean (completion 2025) Adriatic-Milan (completion 2020)
