In this paper, the potential of water-borne transport for urban goods distribution is discussed, and a case study using the city of Amsterdam is presented. Water-borne transport is also compared with other innovative urban transport systems, such as rail and underground freight transportation systems. A water-borne transport system is developed for Amsterdam, showing the primary advantages of the concept, and the feasibility is analyzed for older cities with an existing navigable water network. The concept can also be integrated when planning new urban areas.
