DANUBE LOGISTICS PROMOTION CENTER

Inland waterway transport is one of the oldest economically and environmentally sustainable modes of transportation for passengers and cargo, and plays a vital role in economic development. In Europe, more than 37,000 kilometers of waterways connect hundreds of cities and industrial regions.

Inland waterway transport is reliable and energy efficient and more economical way of transport, with lower costs. In addition, water transport is environmentally the cleanest and also the safest, with major capacity for increased exploitation The Danube is about 2,850 kilometers long and it is a second longest river in Europe, right after Volga. It passes through several European capitals, before it passes through the delta into the Black Sea in Romania and Ukraine. The Danube River through Serbia runs in the length of 588 kilometers, from Bezdan to Timok, and the watershed of its basin consists of 120 tributaries, some of which are the largest in the territory of Serbia - Sava, Tisa and Drina.

The Danube River is the part of the extremely important European corridor Rhine-Danube, and allows navigation of the largest river cruisers and the arrival of a large number of tourists. European Union recognized the Rhine-Danube Corridor as one of the nine multimodal Trans-European transport corridors (TEN-T) networks and it is the only direct connection between Central Europe and the Black Sea. The Danube as such, is the only river in Serbia, which is also a European corridor.

The main objective of the Danube Logistics Promotion Center is to provide the most important information on Danube navigation. Information are easy accesible, custom- oriented and free of charge.
