Most international freight traffic happens on roads, such as the busy route between Finland and St. Petersburg. Road transport presents its own set of challenges, including pollution, accidents and road network congestion. Inland waterway traffic, however, could constitute a cost-effective and environmentally friendly option that also attracts the interest of transport companies.
