EMMA Extension

All too often transport policies focus on road and rail transport. The EMMA project brought attention to the potential of inland waterway transport (IWT) in the Baltic Sea region. Partners studied strengths and weaknesses and elaborated recommendations to better deploy IWT. For example, EMMA has identified new potential routes and services and set up several business plans. In EMMA Extension, commercial pilots are implemented in Sweden, Lithuania and Poland based on these business plans. EMMA has revealed that digitalisation is crucial to make IWT competitive. Therefore, EMMA Extension works to strengthen River Information Services and Vessel Traffic Services.
