Modal Share of inland waterways in China is ~11%, EU it is ~9% and USA it is 8.3%. However, in India, inland waterways carry only approx. 0.6% of the modal share of the tonnage across 20,000 km. In comparison roads carry 65% of freight over 33 lakh kms (or 2.28 lakh km considering only NHs and SHs).
