Many major cities are inseparably linked to the river alongside which they have grown. Inland shipping and the trade it facilitates have played an extremely important role in the economic development of many cities and regions. Numerous goods and raw materials travel via the inland waterways, which are nowhere near to their capacity limits. Their exceptional environmental credentials, the high safety standards applied to shipping and the huge capacity of the vessels are some of the outstanding merits of this traditional mode of transport.
