The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has thrown the whole transportation system into a never before seen level of uncertainty.

Representing a network of more than 150 businesses, Pro Danube International is closely following the measures introduced by the different Danube-riparian countries announced in national notice(s) to skippers. In order to keep track of the measures and also to prepare for the next steps, we kindly ask our members to inform us on additional measures and changes based on their daily experiences and/or information received from authorities.
 
We kindly ask you to do this via the PDI Administrative Barrier Reporting Tool (available in all languages of the Danube Region) and/or email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
