➔ The impact of climate change on the transport sector is relatively unstudied compared to other areas

➔ Changes will lead to geographic shifts in volume rather than overall losses

➔ Apparent net negative effects relate to losses incurred through increasing costs of logistics for inland transport, as some important river levels decline

➔ These losses are not expected to be offset by gains in transport effectiveness in parts of the world experiencing
more flooding of river-ways due to climate change

➔ Water resource management and conservation are required to limit these effects
