Out of familiarity and profound experience in StockCargos’, Danube Logistics, business unit, we highly recommend the barge transportation, as most effective and economic wise inland transport in Europe.
Advantages of the European waterways’ trade routes over seafreight:
✽ For voyage distance of more than 250 km, the barge transportation costs are cheaper than Trucks, or Railways.
✽ European Countries without natural seaport, such; Hungary, Austria, Serbia, Switzerland, Slovakia… can use the rivers and canals as convenient way out to the major seaports. Either Antwerp, Rotterdam, Hamburg, in the North sea, or to Constanta port through the Danube river to the Black-sea.
✽ The distance between North-sea ports to the Blacksea ports, sailing through the Rhine and Danube rivers, is shorter than sailing through the North-sea and Mediterranean to the Black-sea or contrariwise .
Its 3200km, by barge transport, and 6300km by ocean vessel.
✽The transit time with barge transport might be longer than seafreight, but the barge availability is much higher for these routes. You won’t waste your time waiting for suitable sea ship.

✔Outstanding options considering loads weight, size, quantity etc.
