What is watertruck+ ?

Watertruck+ is a European project that aims at the gradual introduction of an innovative concept for the transport of goods on small waterways (CEMT I-IV) that can unlock the economic potential of a region through the use of small, self-propelled or unpropelled, standardised barges. Combined with large or small environmentally friendly push boats, used for pushing the convoys, the concept ensures maximum flexibility of operations while maintaining maximum regional coverage by connecting small inland waterways with the TEN-T network.

The Watertruck+ project aims to achieve a solution that is complementary to the existing inland waterways activities and that is an answer to the ever-diminishing fleet.
