main potential barriers for sustainable socio-economic development
in the European Union (EU) are traffic congestion, environmental
impacts, and economic costs. The EU Transport White Paper “Transport
Policy for 2010: time to decide”proposed important measures to tackle these challenges,
including developing inland waterway and inter-modal transport.The
White Paper proposed shifting cargo from the heavily loaded road
network onto the waterways.Through this proposal, by balancing the
modal shares of transport systems, the existing infrastructure
capacity can be fully used to accommodate future economic growth in
the EU. ...
waterway transport is seen as a reliable, economical, and
environmentally-friendly mode of transport; it is recognised by the
EU as a key means of transport in the European inter-modal transport
The Commission aims to create favourable conditions
for the further development of the sector and to encourage business
to expand the use of this means of transport. Its future development
requires the introduction of modern concepts, technologies and
solutions, so as to adapt to new market needs and to inter-modal
integration, thus providing an accessible, safe, and environmentally-friendly
alternative to the congested road network. Information and
communication technologies provide an opportunity to transfer not
only traditional bulk transport but also other goods, containers and
even high priced just in time transport onto the inland waterway
transport sector.This offers an intelligent, safe, and efficient
method of transport with the information links to the rail, road,
and short-sea systems.
The advanced information and communication
technologies applied on inland waterways will provide inland
shipping with a competitive edge over other means of transport,
together with an effective means of integration into logistic chains.
In 1998, based on the results from several research projects and
various applications, the EU officially defined the concept of River
Information Services (RIS).
defined as a concept of harmonised information services to support
traffic and transport management in inland navigation, including
interfaces to other modes of transport.

Concepts and developed solutions will be applied
to three Logistic Service Providers, representing different
business fields and transport markets as well as one Logistic
Information Provider which will be set up as a virtually
centralized organization according to the strategic approach of
ALSO DANUBE, ensuring the availability of necessary data and
acting as an EDI oriented communication platform.
Logistic Channel 1 "Danube - ARA - Ports -
will provide and demonstrate intermodal transport
chains with inland waterway as key transport mode between the
seaports Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Antwerp (ARA - Ports) and the
inland waterway transport network of the river Danube. This
logistic chain will use state of the art technologies for
planning, controlling and monitoring of the services provided.
The logistic channel will address all kind of goods which fit
into a container.
Logistic Channel 2 "Danube Combined Transport Services - DCS"
will provide and demonstrate intermodal transport chains with
inland waterway transport as key mode between the destinations
Budapest (Hungary), Linz / Enns (Austria) and Deggendorf
(Germany). A further extension of services provided towards
Romania will be considered. In order to improve efficiency and
competitiveness, a new type of turnaround transport equipment
will be used reducing the loading and transshipment times at
transfer points. The chain will be able to provide door-to-door
transport services which include the operation of pre- and end-haulage
via rail and road transport and will be supported by an
integrated information network along the entire logistic channel.
Logistic Channel 3 "ILL - Steel Logistics"
will provide and demonstrate the operation of an integrated
logistic chain based on a "just in time" delivery concept
between two plants of VOEST ALPINE, using inland navigation as
key transport mode. Advanced information and communication
systems will be used to assure a seamless flow of products along
this intermodal door-to-door transport chain. The chain will set
up a highly integrated and automated flow of information between
all involved partners in the logistic chain creating an
efficient logistic network.
"Common Source Logistic Database - CSL.DB"
will be demonstrated by via donau as neutral logistics
information service provider. This CSL.DB will provide qualified
data for the planning and monitoring of logistics and transport
operations in terms of adjusted data subsets, relevant traffic
information and geographical positioning data connected to River
Information Services (RIS), and will use web-based tactical
logistic information imaging. Furthermore, it will support
interactive web-based interfaces and applications; remote client
applications, online transaction processing with external
applications and information databases as well as individual or
EDI standard formats by using the data clearing functionality in
the application interconnectivity management tool.

A 1350 tonnes barge is
consuming four to seven times less fuel than
a road truck. With only 5 litres of fuel, an
inland barge can transport one tonne of
cargo over a full 500 km. With the same
amount of fuel, a train would come to a halt
after 333 km, a truck after barely 100 km,
and an airplane would crash after only 6,6
km of flight.
Faced with rising
transportation costs and continued service problems,
shippers have begun giving serious thought to redesigning
distribution networks and forming multi-company
collaborations to share transportation capacity. Those are
some of the key findings of Logistics Management's 15th
Annual Masters of Logistics Survey.....Source:
