River Information Services

The RIS solution is an IT system fed by data from a central Vessel Traffic System, providing integrated services to further participants of river navigation. Goal of the system is the support of the RIS services, which will result in:

  • increased safety (Minimizing the danger situations and accidents on the waterways),
  • increased efficiency (maximum possible utilization of the ships and waterways, decreasing delivery timespan and loading/unloading time of the goods, decreasing fuel consumption, providing interfaces to other traffic methods),
  • and development of environment friendly technology (decreasing the emission of toxic material, decreasing the damage caused by accidents, decreasing of dangers ).

One of the main objectives of the RIS is to provide a modern and environmentally friendly mode of transport, reducing hazardous emissions and the risk of accidents. Another main objective of the RIS is to improve river transport, technologies and services
