MOBILITY OF THE FUTURE

As Europe’s largest waterway network, Seine-Scheldt will double the trading capacity in the areas crossed and accelerate modal shift to waterways.

ECONOMIC GROWTH

Seine-Scheldt will boost logistical and industrial activity along its 1,100 km of navigable waterways and strengthen the performance of companies using waterway transport.

THE ECOLOGICAL TRANSITION

Seine-Scheldt will prevent the traffic of millions of heavy-goods vehicles on the roads, for the benefit of waterways, the means of transport with the lowest greenhouse gas emissions.
