Walking Back to Nature- Inland Water Transportaton – Solution to Modern Day Transportation

To aid the implementation of policy for the use of inland water transportation, high number of community research and technical development actions, relevant to waterborne transport is require. Some of which could include concerted action on short sea shipping, designed to identify some of the structural or generic problems in the use of ships for relatively short-haul transport and other that target environmental impacts as well as issue of safe and efficient increase of reliability intermodal transportation. Furthermore, hybrid use of transportation will require the intelligent transportation system that incorporates use of advanced Integrated Ship Control Systems, AIS and extensive use of information technology needed to provide a solution to modern transportation problem.
