The smaller barges within the Osprey fleet can be used for transit through the UK and European inland river & canal systems and we are experienced in these operations.
The advantage of inland delivery is nearest water access to facilities such as Power Stations and the ability to connect factories to their export markets. As well as being environmentally positive it also takes traffic off roads reducing impacts on local people especially during a construction or refurbishment project. Sometimes water is the only way to transport large items to or from an inland site.
In Europe We regularly undertake contracts requiring the use of self-propelled inland water vessels to navigate the Rhine and Danube and have undertaken delivery shipments as far inland as Budapest.
