Inland navigation is an eco-friendly means of transport. Despite this, many European waterways are not or hardly used. Watertruck+ turns the tide with small, self-propelled or unpropelled, standardised barges and push boats. This concept allows bulk goods as well as containers and pallets to be transported on small waterways.
The Watertruck+ project went through several stages, from research in 2014 until roll-out in 2020.
