The Flemish waterway authority De Vlaamse Waterweg is responsible for the maintenance, operation, management and commercialisation of 1,067 km of inland waterways in Flanders, the northern part of Belgium.

Piet Creemers, national RIS COMEX coordinator of Belgium

“As a waterway authority in Belgium we want to make inland navigation more safe and efficient. Therefor we invest in River Information Services (RIS) and are looking forward to further improvement, harmonization and cooperation with our strategic partners. During different European projects the focus was mainly on exploring the possibilities of RIS, less on the implementation of sustainable realizations. RIS COMEX is founded on the results of those successful projects. By introducing RIS corridor management we will be able to offer our customers the services they’ve always wanted. With RIS COMEX we’ll rise the current state of RIS in Europe to a next level!”
