This paper reviews the state-of-the-art of the EconomyPlanner system which enables skippers to optimise cargo volumes and to reduce fuel consumption by energy efficient ship operation. The principle is based on collaborative data collection by inland ships. The development of the EconomyPlanner is commissioned by the European Commission and Rijkswaterstaat. The projects are carried out by a consortium consisting of knowledge institutes, waterway authorities and representatives of the inland navigation branch.
