Our Message

For centuries the Indus River system was the life line of transport in the Indian Sub-Continent.  During the early part of the 20th century river transport was gradually replaced by the newly built railroad system, which was cheap and effective at that time. Rail cargo, in turn, slowly shifted to trucks.

Background

At the time of Independence, Pakistan inherited a well-developed riverine and canal system that extended from Sindh to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The river and canal system cover approximately 30,000 kms in both horizontal and vertical reaches in the riparian, and physically integrates the country.
