River barge transport is one of the most environmentally friendly, efficient and competitive forms of transport for large volumes of cargo in terms of costs involved. Another advantage is that by using this means of transport, customers have the opportunity to avoid the blockages, congestions and restrictions that characterize the road transport.

At the same time, this type of transport is increasingly encouraged by the European Union due to the ecological factor, the consumption of fuel per unit being transported is considerably diminished compared to road transport.
