    The business of different countries of the region made investments in river transport due to the following factors:

  • Mobility (based on natural infrastructure);
  • Convenient logistics (1 river barge with the capacity of 1000 tons replaces the work of 30 railway cars or 50 motor vehicles);
  • Economy (the cost of transportation by water transport is much cheaper in comparison with road and rail).
