Inland water transport has the following disadvantages:

i. It has a limited network. 

ii. It requires good and uniform discharge throughout the year. 

iii. It can transport men and material only from terminal to terminal, so it has to be supported by a network of roadways and railways. 

iv. It involves the risk of floods.
