Multimodal Transportation: An Overview

There is 14, 5000 km of navigable waterways in India, of which about 5,700 km is navigable by mechanized vessels. The share of Inland Waterways Transportation (IWT) IN India is far lower as compared with many other countries which have optimally utilized the benefits of IWT. The IWT modal share in Netherlands is 42%, France 15%, Hungary 15%, Germany 14%, Belgium 13% and in US 15%. Costal shipping acts for inter-modal transportation plays an important role in the integrated logistics chain in developed countries. Costal shipping, also known as Short Sea Shipping (SSS), accounts for 43% of cargo traffic in Europe. Other economies such as US and China have adopted development and utilization plans increased transportation through inland/ costal waterways. In India cargo movement by IWT increased from 32 million tons in 2003-04 to 69 million tons in 2009-10. Most of the cargo movement by IWT takes place in Goa and Maharashtra, which accounts for around 90% share of cargo traffic on IWT.
