Riverlake Barging was established in 2011. We specialize in inland barge brokerage. Based in Rotterdam, our main activity is to provide full shipbroker services for the marine transportation of liquid bulk products on inland waterways. We focus on bulk transportation of all liquid products, such as mineral oils, chemicals, bio-fuels, edible oils and gas. Our main geographical focus is on the European inland waterways and beyond.

Our purpose is to:
