 Central aim of organisation
via donau is a modern and efficiently run company that operates waterways and executes sovereign functions on behalf of the federal authorities.

 Briefly describe your organisation
via donau – Österreichische Wasserstraßen-Gesellschaft mbH was created from the merger of the Österreichische Donau-Betriebs AG, the Österreichische Donau-Technik GmbH, the Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH für Telematik und Donauschifffahrt and the semi-privatised Austrian Waterway Authority. This restructuring has given Austria a modern waterway management company that meets the Austrian federal government’s responsibilities which specifically concern waterways.
via donau provides the Austrian business community with competitive transportation infrastructure in the Danube and works together with Austrian businesses to come up with innovative logistics solutions aimed at increasing the utilisation of this waterway. In addition via donau is tackling important new projects as well as in operating the river navigation information system DoRIS – Donau River Information Services.
