Innovation consulting applied to transport and logistics
Inland waterway transport
Coventuris develops opportunities in the transport and logistics sector through consulting services or in partnership. Companies, public organisations, research institutes and start-ups benefit from our expertise in business & innovation together with a structured ecosystem of key stakeholders positioned on the value chain.
Technological, organisational and business model innovations can bring efficiency and improve socio-economic and environmental Key Performance Indicators. However, organisations tend to lack either market knowledge, funding or partners. Coventuris helps organisations to execute innovation roadmaps aligned with market needs.
Inland waterway transport (IWT) will play a growing role in decarbonising supply chains and decongesting urban areas. New transhipment, ICT and organisational solutions are key to offer reliable and cost-effective IWT services complementary to other modes. Coventuris brings specific expertise to design, build and launch products and services dedicated to the IWT sector.
We performed studies and organised pilots within the project Smart Track 4 Waterway for the innovation cluster Logistics in Wallonia. The project successfully developed and tested solutions to digitally and physically interconnect IWT with last-mile logistics.
At RiverHubs we research and develop solutions easing transhipment between inland waterway and other transport modes.
TransBev helps supermarkets, importers and cellars to import wines by optimising the transport booking and management. We don’t only offer road but train and barges alternatives as well.
