FIS The Netherlands

The objective of the Action is to develop and implement Fairway Information Services (FIS) that will fully comply with the RIS Directive and subsequent technical specifications. All available fairway information for skippers will be combined and integrated in one consistent information system.

The objectives addressed through the implementation of the FIS are:
- Improved reliability of travel times on inland waterways through provision of robust (accurate and timely) data for voyages, thereby making inland waterway transport more suitable for current logistics processes
- Improved algorithms to estimate travel times in route planning application software provided by commercial companies for shipping purposes
- Support future developments on fuel economy and more accurate voyage plans
- Improved safety levels with automatically generated alarm messages.

Total costs € 1,990.000 (TEN-T contribution € 398,000).
