Get to know Europe by cargo ship


CargoRiders is a research project at the University of Applied Sciences St. Pölten, which is carried out together with the partner company bitsfabrik.

CargoRiders is intended as a platform for the search, planning and handling of cargo ship journeys on European inland waters. Users can explore routes and ships to plan their individual freighter voyage. The request to the captains is also made via the platform. In turn, captains can view, accept and communicate with interested parties.


We are currently working on the implementation of the platform, so there are no real bookings possible at the moment.

Are you interested in using this platform? You are welcome to send us questions to as well as follow us on our Facebook page .
