Today this year’s international key trade fair for the European logistics and supply chain sector once again opens its doors in Munich. Under the headline “Danube round table: waterway & logistics” viadonau, the IGOD-partners, the ports of Linz, Enns, Krems and Vienna and the WienCont welcome exhibitors and visitors at the transport logistic 2017, the international exhibition for logistics, mobility, IT and Supply Chain Management.

The advantages of inland navigation as an environmentally-friendly alternative for transport and its significant service potential for transport of large freight volumes and specific products are a major issue for the sustainable development of the European transport network. The focal point of the trade fair presence of viadonau and the IGÖD-partners is the creation of awareness and concrete incentives for shifting goods transport to waterways and also paying more attention to the possibilities of waterway transport. 

Focusing on building materials

Following successful priority working initiatives like the project Renewable resources on inland waterway and in order to promote the transport of recycled products on the waterway, viadonau is pointing out another important group of goods suitable for waterway transport. With the slogan “Young professionals build on the Danube – Inland waterway transport of building materials” viadonau is inviting to a podium discussion on May 11. Young practitioners from shipping enterprises, cargo handling companies and Austrian and Bavarian Danube ports will be discussing the possibilities for the transfer of building material transport to waterway, current challenges of the Danube Logistics and the favourable economic outlook under the moderation of Eva Michlits, press officer of viadonau. 

The framework of the Danube Ports Info Day provides information about the new project DAPhNE in network meetings and moderated roundtable discussions to be held on May 11. The project aims to drive the ports towards environmentally-friendly and efficient interfaces in multimodal transport.

Traditionally, at the fair the visitors have a wide range of opportunities to gather information about waterways, inland navigation and logistics at a joint exhibition stand.
