Inland waterway transport in Europe
No significant improvements in modal share and navigability conditions since 2001. Special report No 01/2015
Inland waterway transport is one of the three main land transport modes in Europe. The significant loading capacity of inland navigation vessels, which is equivalent to hundreds of trucks, could contribute to reducing transport costs and emissions and decongesting roads. With this report, the Court assessed whether the EU inland waterway strategies were coherent and based on relevant and comprehensive analysis. In addition, the Court examined whether the projects co‑funded by the EU budget contributed effectively to increasing the modal share of this mode of transport and helped in improving... navigability conditions.
