Unlocking the potential of small waterways
Inland waterway transport
INLAND WATERWAY TRANSPORT
A growing economy requires an efficient transportation mode. Rivers and canals provide a natural highway for transportation. Inland shipping is reliable, safe, on-time, green and energy efficient. However, to reach the full potential of our waterway network, innovation must be accelerated. Starting with automated barges on small waterways.
Smarter. Greener. Safer.
AUTOMATED INLAND WATERWAY TRANSPORT
SEAFAR develops technology to remotely operate automated barges for inland shipping. Next to developing technology, SEAFAR specializes in operating and managing automated barges. SEAFAR is offering services to barge owners with barges up to 750 tons.
The use of automated or unmanned barges opens a wide range of new opportunities in small cargo shipping, thanks to the reduction of operating expenses, optimizing maintenance, reducing fuel costs, decreasing accidents, maximizing cargo space and offsetting the shortage of personnel.
