6 Institutional Framework Euro Wide Inland Navigation Europe Research & Development Subsidies (Marco Polo) Equal competition/competitiveness National Development agencies Maintenance of locks Dredging Corridors/Axis International treaties along main waterway Manheim Accord The Rhine Belgrade Convention Danube Regions/Cities Operate ports/nodes Vienna Brussels Manheim

7 Container-on on-barge Services are Viable and Sustainable Container-on on-barge services have existed almost as long as the container trade itself has been in existence, predominantly in Europe E and in China/Hong Kong. Container-on on-barge services are also in existence in the United States, particularly in the northwest, the t Gulf Coast and along the eastern seaboard.

8 International Gateway Port The most successful container-on on-barge examples have at least one major international container gateway seaport at the mouth of the waterway. The international gateway is the critical node between n the domestic inland container barge services and the international container ship services to major offshore container trade markets.

9 The Rhine\Scheldt Scheldt\Seine Seine Network Slide courtesy of European Federation of Inland Ports

11 Main European Ports: Evolution of Market Shares (Total Container Trade) 50% 45% 40% 35% 30% 25% 20% 15% 10% 5% 0% Hamburg Bremen Rotterdam Antwerp Slide courtesy of Port of Antwerp

13 Mode Shift Tactics Tactical approach for Rotterdam. Modal Shift % of tonnage on waterways Leases for Port Tenants Revenue Potential # of Ships calling at port Economic Development # of jobs created

14 Significant Concentrations of Upstream Economic Activity Container-on on-barge services are sustainable only if there are significant existing or potential volumes of international maritime ime containers moving between the requisite international gateway port and inland markets. The first tier-inland inland markets are typically adjacent to or within close proximity to a navigable waterway.

16 R dam s s Inland Container Markets Germany Belgium France Switzerland Number: x Container

17 The Importance of Scale In order for the waterways to compete and provide the requisite levels of service and reliability to the container markets, it is i important to focus on those market segments where there is significant scale. Scale is also critical in terms of attaining measurable and real benefits to congestion and the environment.

24 Container Terminal Neckar River Ship-to to-ship transfer Slide courtesy of Port of Mannheim Neckar allows 2-high 2 stacks Rhine allows 3-high 3 stacks

25 Climate Change Global warming is is undermining. Declining rainfall/snow Lowering water level Inland Water Transport Sustainability Optimum draft 2 meters (6.5 ft) Reduce barge efficiencies 60% of normal load factor

26 Victim of Own Success Growth has Flattened. Gtwy Ports Push Mode Shift No dedicated warf/dock space Terminal Operators/Carriers Container Traffic Volumes Want density per barge Barge Operators Prefer smaller frequent loads Fuel and charter rates up

27 Reliable, Rapid & Scheduled Services are a Prerequisite The conditions and characteristics of the waterway system have to support a rapid and scheduled service that is reliable. These include i depth, minimal locks, and manageable distances. Policies should support the development of faster and lower-cost vessels that are specifically designed and built to serve the marine container market.

36 Eroding Modal Market Shares While inland waterways are an absolutely vital part of the multi- modal system, specifically in the case of bulk/liquid commodities, they are losing market share in the high-service international container and domestic intermodal markets.

37 Need to Grasp and Market the Opportunities Passive supply side approaches, relying on trends such as converging transport costs, and internalizing external costs such as congestion and the environment are not achieving needed results. Proactive policies, funding, incentives, promotion, marketing and project development efforts should be targeted at segments of the waterway ay system that provide the most ideal conditions for operating container ainer- on-barge services.

48 Subsidies and Incentives Policies, incentives and subsidies are an important tool toward supporting and developing a start-up container-on on-barge to a break- even and financially viable level of operation. Incentives and subsidies are most successful where the market dynamics are at a significant level of scale.
