The layout and length of Poland's inland waterways have remained at a similar level for years, while the volume of the cargo carried by Polish fleet owners by inland waterways decreases. Among the factors directly impacting the decrease in cargo transport and transport performance in inland shipping is insufficient development of waterways and unfavourable navigation conditions determining the basic structural parameters of the rolling stock, i.e. relatively low capacity of barges. With a small scale of inland waterways transport, the volume of transported cargo measured in tonnes is subject to large fluctuations resulting from the nature of these transports.
