Inland waterway transport represent environmentally friendly transport mode accompanied with other potential benefits, such as increased transport safety and increased cost savings. In order to encourage further development of inland waterway transport in this paper focus is set on the identification of the barriers that limit and prevent development of inland waterway transport. More specifically, emphasis is placed on the barriers that are preventing the cargo shifting from land to waterway transport system. Research conducted in case of Republic of Serbia investigates several barriers which are classified in four main categories: goods, logistics, infrastructure, framework conditions. Framework conditions barriers are further subdivided and classified in four subcategories: political/legal, environment, economy, technology. Results indicate that the most significant negative influence on the further development of the inland waterway transport in Serbia comes from the political/legal barriers. This result implies that the government need to pay more attention to development of inland waterway transport, as well as to make more effort to enhance the cooperation with stakeholders.
