Blue Line Logistics has started the building of the first 2 PSB's in Belgium. They are expected to start operations in May of this year and will initially be used in the transport of building materials in the Antwerp - Brussels - Herentals area.

The PSB®, or Pallet Shuttle Barge, is a 50 m long inland barge, capable of carrying 300 tons of goods on pallets or in big-bags. It has its own lifting equipment on board and can position itself dynamically through its rudder-propellor and bow-thrusters. This will allow it to operate in a flexible manner along the waterways.

It is crewed by 1 person and is propelled by a 300 hp engine, making it a cost effective mode of transport.
