The innovative project Watertruck+ offers a solution for the transport on small waterways. Through the development of small, self-propelled or unpropelled, standardised barges, Watertruck+ connects the smaller waterways to the TEN-T network. The result? A reduction of no less than 6,000 truck journeys in 2020. The project went through several stages, from research in 2014 until roll-out in 2020.
To celebrate the official launch of Watertruck+, the Watertruck+ organisation and its partners De Vlaamse Waterweg nv, Antwerp Management School, Group De Cloedt, André Celis Group and INEA invite you to the online closing event on 10 February 2021 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
