About the Future Perspectives of Inland Waterway Freight in Central Europe

Tamás Fleischer

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: The paper collects arguments to present that the consumption- and emission characteristics of the rail and inland navigation modes are very close to each other. Considering that these modes are able to transport more or less the same groups of goods, it is a much better way to develop them within an integrated transport policy than trying to bring arguments for one of them against the other.
