New Report Released: - Barge Transportation Market in Europe 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the barge transportation market in Europe: Danser Group, Contargo, Rhenus Group, and Alcotrans Container Line.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Acos/NWL, Alpherium, ARA Bulk, Barge Line TODAY, Barge Terminal Born, Dubbelman Container Transporten, Eurobarges, Elbe Rijn Lloyd, Frankenbach, H&S Container Line and Hapo International Barges.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One trend in the market is development and modernization of existing fleets. Manufacturers have not only developed new barge vessels but also are modernizing the existing fleets, with respect to retrofitting and structural alternations. This includes the replacement or renewal of the new power system, which improves the performance of vessels and aids in less fuel consumption.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is minimal land use resulting in less cost of infrastructure. Trains occupy large space and trucks cause congestion in highways. In Europe, the road freight is constantly delayed due to traffic congestion. Loss of time due to traffic congestion on roadways leads to over 75% of the road freight being delayed, which directly impacts customers and vendors. Also, most railroads in Europe need to be upgraded as they cannot support heavy goods. Hence, most shippers are turning to barge transportation for shipping their goods. Rail networks passing through urban areas and trucking operations across populated areas and highways are the disturbing elements that harm the environment around.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is barge transportation impacted by adverse weather conditions. Weather conditions play a significant role in water transportation, including inland marine transportation. Hurricanes occurring in the inland waterway systems impair the operating efficiencies of marine fleets. Such adverse weather conditions delay, divert, or postpone shipments of products. Such incidents also negatively affect the performance and efficiency of barge fleets, limit night movements, and dictate horsepower requirements.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
