Abstract

Inland waterway transport is an important element of the freight transport throughout Europe. Waterways connect the most important points of transport infrastructure with each other, which provides direct access to the sea for countries that do not have it. Inland waterways are classified due to the width and depth of the pass. Currently, in Poland, many transport routes are not adapted to the requirements of companies dealing in water transport. Few sections have received the European Class IV, which allows the flow of cargo. By improving the conditions of navigation in Poland, there is a chance of direct connection between the Baltic and the Adriatic, which would be beneficial for international transport. The aim of this article is to present perspectives for 2020-2030, assuming changes enabling the development of inland waterway transport in Poland.
