Inland Water Transport

Contargo Waterway Logistics BV

Welcome to Contargo Waterway Logistics BV - your experts for reliable, cost-effective, environmentally friendly inland waterway transport!

Contargo Waterway Logistics BV, based in Capelle aan den IJssel, Netherlands, is the central hub for practically all of Contargo's inland waterway activities. Our core business focuses on creating stable connections between the inland terminals along the Rhine and Main and the well-known western sea ports (Antwerp, Rotterdam and Amsterdam). We use established routes and reliable timetables to ensure an end-to-end logistics solution for you.

Our extensive presence at inland terminals in various locations allows us to offer you a wide range of options for optimally positioning your empty containers. We understand the importance of efficient container placement and can offer you tailored solutions for your transport requirements.

Inland waterway transport is more than just a means of transportation: It's a bridge to sustainable, future-oriented logistics solutions. As of 2024, electric barges will be joining the Contargo network!

Services

Contargo's permanent fleet includes 38 barges and 18 push barges, which convey 13,498 TEUs. All along the Rhine, we connect terminals in the ARA ports with the European hinterland. High load capacities, our own fleet and fixed timetables lighten the burden on the road network and on the environment.

Our barges make frequent journeys at a dependable speed. For example, the travel time between the western ports and Basel takes an average of 3.5 days for exports and 5 days for imports; between Rotterdam and Duisburg, we need just 1 day of pure travel time for exports and 1.5 days for imports.

Sustainability

Our aim is to move as many shipments as possible from the roads to other modes of transport. Our dense network of our own terminals allows us to travel the perfect distance by barge when splitting shipments over different modes of transport. This benefits our customers, who enjoy a reduction in costs, as well as the environment, since CO2 emissions per tonne kilometre decrease when barges are used.

And every single day, trucks travelling on German roads cause economic damage of around 200 million euros. 13 million working hours are lost each day due to traffic jams, and 33 million litres of diesel is used up. Transport by barge easily wins when it comes to environmental balance, and waterways are not prone to traffic jams or Sunday travel bans.
