Market observation

Regular observation and analysis of the inland waterway transport sector is carried out, on behalf of the European Commission, by the Central Commission for Navigation on the Rhine (CCNR), in collaboration with the European inland navigation organisations. This market observatory function is necessary in order to support the further promotion of the sector and allow analysis of its development.

The regular (biannual) reports produced by the CCNR provide:

  • an analysis of the demand for inland waterway transport;
  • an analysis of the offer on the inland waterway market;
  • an overview of navigation conditions on Europe’s inland waterways;
  • a microeconomic analysis of the sector.
