Voies navigables de France is the public administration in charge of the management of the waterways in France. One of our missions is to develop the navigation and to increase the traffic on our network for both leisure and cargo transport.
We are here in order to meet shippers and logistics decision makers on the heavy lifts market and the containers market.
Our role is to create modal shift from road logistics to inland waterway logistics. To do so we communicate on the benefits of our transport mode, we have incentive plans to back the shippers’ projects (we can fund logistics studies for example), we are also in contact with all the actors (especially skippers, handling companies, French maritime and inland ports) of the French inland waterway supply chain.
We facilitate the contact and the work between shippers and skippers.
