The Netherlands is the main European hub for water transport. The volume of cargo transport to and from the hinterland and Europe is considerable. With the construction of Maasvlakte 2 near Rotterdam, the flow of cargo is increasing. The Dutch inland waterways have the capacity to serve as an alternative to road and rail transport. Therefore Rijkswaterstaat initiated the IDVV programme. Within this programme public and private parties, knowledge institutes, shippers, carriers, ports and terminals cooperate to make better use of the waterways. This video gives an impression of the most important objectives and results.
