The Image work package in PLATINA has prepared a Communications toolbox to aid those communicating about inland navigation. The toolbox, based on the communication strategy developed in the work package, contains a selection of items designed to make it easy to convey key messages on the advantages of inland waterway transport.
These key messages are:
- Inland waterway transport is the perfect mode for all kind of products/goods (not only bulk transportation), because it operates just in time and has a lot of free capacity, making sure that it can guarantee you efficient transportation.
- It provides you with integrated solutions; it gets your products/goods from A to B in the most efficient (also cost-efficient) and effective manner and you do not have to be settled next to a river or canal.
- We have an integrated network of rivers and canals in the whole of Europe.
