From an economic point of view, inland waterway and river terminals are more interesting than road. River transportation helps limit the use of road transportation for the access to warehouses, get around the increasing shortage in trucks and contribute to a lower road traffic congestion.
Last, inland waterway protects environment insofar as it reduces road transportation and arranges at river stop over premises for container storage close to the shippers' warehouses.
