Quick Summary:

The inland water freight transport market is a dynamic sector that plays a critical role in the global logistics chain. As corporations strive to optimize their supply chains and reduce transportation costs, inland waterways present a compelling avenue for moving bulk commodities efficiently and reliably. The urgency for this mode of transport grows as businesses look for sustainable practices to meet both operational and environmental objectives.

For senior executives surveying the horizon for strategic investments and partnerships, our in-depth market research report provides an indispensable tool. It covers the critical elements driving growth, from advancements in vessel management technology to enhancements in sustainable practices, ensuring you stay ahead in the logistics and cargo transportation landscape. Accessing this report will empower your decision-making with comprehensive analysis and expert insights, tailored for those ready to command the shipping routes of tomorrow.

The inland water freight transport market size has grown strongly in recent years. It will grow from $18.66 billion in 2023 to $19.92 billion in 2024 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.7%. The expansion observed in the historical period can be attributed to factors such as the rising population, economic growth in emerging markets, the demand for economical cargo transportation, and an increase in investments.

The inland water freight transport market size is expected to see strong growth in the next few years. It will grow to $25.51 billion in 2028 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.4%. The anticipated growth in the forecast period can be attributed to faster economic growth, a growing demand for e-commerce, infrastructure advances, and increasing investments. Significant trends expected in the forecast period include investments in information technology platforms for improved vessel management, the adoption of lean and green inland transportation practices, embracing partnerships and funding initiatives, utilization of freight and fleet tracking and management systems, adoption of terminal and port information and communication systems, and investments in freight tracking systems.

The inland water freight transport market is poised for growth due to the increasing demand for bulk transportation of goods. Bulk transportation involves the movement of large quantities of goods or materials, and inland water freight transport is well-suited for handling such substantial volumes. In 2021, the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) reported the daily average movement of approximately 53.6 million tons of freight, valued at over $54 billion in the United States. This trend reflects the market's expansion driven by the growing need for bulk transportation of goods.

Economic considerations for cargo transportation have been a primary driver for the inland water freight transport market. Water freight is generally perceived as a cost-effective option for heavier cargo, with fare calculations often based on the cubic meter of the standard container. In comparison, other modes of transport, such as air transport, determine chargeable weight through a combination of size and cargo weight. The World Bank notes that in India, waterways offer a more economical means of transporting cargo, with lower costs compared to road and rail transport.

Leading companies in the inland water freight transport market are embracing innovation, incorporating advanced technologies such as fuel cell technology to address environmental concerns. Fuel cell technology involves the direct conversion of fuel to electricity through electrochemical reactions. For example, Gazonor Béthune, a French subsidiary of La Française de l'Energie, introduced La Bethune, the world's first hydrogen fuel cell-powered river barge. This vessel, equipped with a 200 kW fuel cell system, aims to reduce carbon emissions by up to 40% compared to diesel-powered barges.

An emerging trend in the inland water freight transport market is the development of information technology platforms for enhanced vessel management. Approximately 80% of global trade by volume is carried by waterways, with ships using IT for fuel optimization, performance monitoring, document recognition, customer relationship management, warehouse management, and Que management systems. Notable platforms such as BunkerEx, Nautilus Labs, and Radiantfleet contribute to efficient operations, cost reduction, and improved budgeting by integrating digital and physical connectivity in the shipping industry.

In September 2021, Denmark-based logistics service provider Blue Water Shipping acquired Freightway International, a Canadian logistics company. This acquisition is anticipated to strengthen Blue Water's reefer activities in the North Atlantic region, emphasizing its commitment to the Canadian and North Atlantic markets within the inland water freight transport sector.
