At this moment, some cargo flows are not transported via the water because of a lack of appropriate carrying methods (operational hindrances). For example, transport of paper products or construction material (concrete) requires innovative transshipment solutions. Also, the transport of empty containers is not an efficient way of optimizing the capacity use of an inland vessel. The challenge is to organize this type of transport in another way (for example by means of collapsible containers). This project aims to identify and test new transshipment techniques for Inland Navigation and Short Sea Shipping in the region Flanders, Netherlands, France and UK.
