Our advantages

Carriage of Goods on Inland Waterways

Danube navigation can meet all your combined transport needs.

Our success and customer-tailored services are greatly supported by the capabilities of our partners, be it through a versatile Danube-based fleet or leveraging upon favourable geographic locations along the Danube, Main and Rhine.

DSMS’ primary field of operation are shipments on the Danube river. Next to iron ore and coal of Ukrainian and Russian origin destined for major European steel producers, we also successfully transport grain, steel, fertilizers, liquids & oils, light petroleum products, heavy lift and  oversized cargoes.

Our transports are primarily carried out by combined pusher/multi-barge convoys with a loading capacity of up to 15.000 tons.

Next to our core presence on the Danube, we operate on the Rhine, the Main as well as the Dnieper, amongst others.
