What is watertruck+?

Watertruck+ is a European project that introduces an innovative concept for the transport of goods on small waterways (CEMT I-IV). By using small, self-propelled or unpropelled, standardized barges, combined with large or small environmentally friendly push boats, used for pushing the convoys, the concept ensures maximum flexibility of operations while simultaneously maintaining maximum regional coverage by connecting small inland waterways with the TEN-T network. In making the small waterways available for cargo transport, Watertruck+ unlocks the economic potential of multiple regions.
