The Marketing of River Forwarding and Freight Services

Georgeta Modiga, Gabriel Avramescu


River forwarding and freight contain, on the one hand, the movement of goods on the river
and on the other hand, services related to handling, storage, issuance of documents and payment of all
rendered services. Currently, inland navigation in Europe and on other continents has an increasing
share of the overall transport of goods. From the statistical published data it results, for example, that
in Central Europe the inland waterway has nearly 1/3 of all traffic, with a constant growth tendency.

and technical base of the river transportation system, respectively, it depends on the number and
capacity of the used vessel, size and level of equipment of ports, and the navigability of the waters.
