“Navigable inland waterways: Promoting freight movement in a cost-effective, fuel-efficient manner”

Stretches of water that are not part of the sea, but still suitable for vessel navigation offers a complementary alternative to road and rail freight movement. The freight movements using inland waterways is both cost-effective and fuel-efficient. Furthermore, since traffic or congestion and fossil fuel emissions from road freight movement are on the rise; inland waterways provide a more environmentally friendly option, both in terms of energy-efficiency and lower emissions.

India’s huge network of rivers and other water bodies play a critical role as one of the most important ecosystems for freight movement through inland waterways. It is projected that the country’s dependence on such transport will increase dramatically in the coming decades, and this requires the development of critical infrastructure.

Eka Infra is proud to be a part of many such initiatives that have already taken off in the country. We have first-hand knowledge of the importance, condition and cost of high-quality waterway’ infrastructure. We have the expertise building along the waterways to ensure they become a valuable addition to the country’s freight infrastructure.
