3 BARGE TO BUSINESS/RIVERDATING 2014 Mission Inland waterway transport is terra incognita for a lot of shippers and logistics professionals: how to get started, whom to contact to add waterway transport to the supply chain. This is why the event serves as a meeting platform for all the actors of multimodal transport interested in waterway transport: transport and terminal operators, shippers and logistics service providers, institutions. The objective is to develop dialogue, networking and business, and above all, continuously improve transport & logistics services in a multimodal context from origin to destination. The event organisers The European Logistics Advisory Network (ELAN) is a European project without commercial interest, that brings together waterway managers and promotion agencies from Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Austria and the Netherlands with the aim to increase the information about possibilities of adding inland waterways to multimodal supply chains. Who supports the event The event is hosted by the European Commission and the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Infrastructure of Luxembourg

9 WHAT PARTICIPANTS SAY SHIPPERS For Mars, Barge to Business and Riverdating offer a great chance to learn from others and pick up and exchange new ideas. We have set ourselves important sustainability targets, and to reach these we seek to identify and investigate the best and most efficient opportunities within intermodal transport. We particularly value the way networking is organised as it provides the ideal platform to meet and talk to a very wide range of colleagues, all with useful ideas, in a very short and concentrated period of time.
