Amsterdam RAI Chooses Sustainable Freight Transport Via Boat

Amsterdam RAI received goods by boat for the first time today. An electric-powered vessel from the Mokum Mariteam company arrived fully laden and also left with a full cargo.

Thanks to its location on the water, the centre is connected directly to Amsterdam’s dense network of waterways, allowing it to make the most of this new transport possibility.

Electric water transport is an important segment in the CSR policies of the centre. The idea came about thanks to a fruitful cooperation with waste disposal company Icova, one of the founders of Mokum Mariteam, and it soon became clear that this type of clean and quiet freight transport method is ideal for supplying events.

Taking into account the collection of return freight, the deployment of the Mokum Mariteam boat takes the place of between five and six city lorries.
