Inland Shipping: almost 300 inland barges certified

The inland shipping certification programme continues to attract new participants, and by now, the number of inland navigation barges with the Green Award certificate has almost reached 300.

A Green Award certificate can be obtained by inland navigation vessels that meet the Green Award requirements which include items related to the technical equipment on board and to the crew. Just as the fleet at sea, inland navigation barges have to meet the high standards of safety and sustainability.
