European Inland Waterway Transport platform’s annual report

The European Inland Waterway Transport (IWT) platform publishes its first annual report covering the activities of the platform since its creation in January 2018.

The European Barge Union (EBU) and the European Skippers Organisation (ESO) have established the platform as an executive layer to their organisations to strengthen the representation and visibility of the Inland Waterway Transport sector at European and international level.

Along with traditional areas, the key focus of the platform is Innovation and Greening (I&G). The I&G Committee works on topics that all transport modes have in common. Connecting with these other types of transportation and with their stakeholders will not only lead to valuable input for IWT’s own objectives, but it will create the opportunity to put inland navigation at the forefront of innovation and greening.

2018 annual report of the European Inland Waterway Transport platform presents the activities and goals of the sector together with the challenges ahead.
