Working together
Mission Statement

As a production and industrial hub, Austria requires economically attractive logistics infrastructure, as well as optimal connections to the most important European seaports. Through their trimodal infrastructure the four public Danube ports of Linz, Enns, Krems and Vienna fulfil these requirements and have a substantial impact on the Austrian economy′s ability to compete. In addition to high-quality logistics facilities and real estate, the ports offer a variety of services for logistics and freight transport.  The Danube waterway provides optimal opportunities for expansion into the rapidly growing markets in Southeastern Europe. The further strengthening of the Danube waterway is thus one of the key objectives of IGÖD′s activities. IGÖD is also a member of the European Federation of Inland Ports (EFIP).  IGÖD carries out the following basic tasks.
  • Furthering and lobbying for common interests in transport, waterways and seaports.
  • Establishing contact and working together with foreign and international associations with the same interests.
  • Enhancing the public′s knowledge of and improving its attitude towards the use of the Danube for the transportation of goods.
  • Exchange of opinions and information between members.
