This paper compares two solutions for goods transport by water in the Po river basin. The planned channelisation of the entire course of the Po River from Piacenza to the Adriatic sea is compared with the alternative project to extend the existing artificial waterway from Mantua to Cremona. The comparison, conducted from the viewpoint of a transport company, shows a substantial advantage for the artificial waterway over navigation along the course of the Po, due to the shorter distance of the navigable route and to the guarantees in terms of water levels which only an artificial waterway can offer in terms of service continuity for the infrastructure.
