Barge to Business
Barge to Business, the European inland navigation sector’s showcase, is where the waterways industry meets its clients. Where logistics managers meet suppliers. Where the business community meets to discuss key issues to move more transport by waterway. To discuss, to debate chain optimization, bundling cargo, greening transport and new infrastructure plans.
Barge to Business incorporates the client-facing Riverdating, an opportunity for logistics managers to have efficient business dates with transport service suppliers to discuss how inland navigation can contribute to their freight transport mix.
- Jan Goyaarts, Factory Outbound Logistics Manager, MARS
“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.”
- Robert-Jan Zimmerman, CEO, MERCURIUS Shipping Group
“Barge to Business has become the event for the European inland waterways logistics sector. Each time a wide range of existing and improved services are promoted, and interesting players in the market are presented. This is a great networking event.”
