Digitization and application of geodata in inland navigation

DigiShip


Shipping volume in Germany is predicted to grow significantly until the year 2030. It is estimated the shipping volume in freight traffic will increase by about one third. While other modes of transport are already reaching the limits of their capacity, waterways and in particular inland waterways still have considerable scope for expansion.

ZIM-cooperation network

In Germany inland waterway transport plays – alongside road transport –important role in Germany in particular. Against this backdrop, inland waterway transport is not only a reliable and flexible transport system, but also remains by far the most environmentally friendly mode of transport with major advantages in the transport of hazardous goods. The share of sport and leisure shipping is also constantly increasing, whichhighlights the need for operational use of traffic management systems and individual navigation assistants. The basic prerequisites for functioning inland navigation are efficient infrastructure, environmentally friendly and modern ships, and appropriate integration into multimodal logistics chains. The network aims at promoting the development of digital technologies and to strengthen the network stability of the entire waterway system in inland navigation. This includes comprehensive linkage, innovative digital concepts and business models, and the development of digital platforms which are linking different stakeholders and modes of transportation.
