The Koninklijke BLN-Schuttevaer was an institution representing the interests of owners and skippers of the Dutch inland navigation. But forwarders, barge operators and other entrepreneurs connected with trades on water, canals and rivers could become a member as well. The institution was established in 2015 and was itself the result of an amalgamation of BLN Binnenvaart Logistiek Nederland and the Koninklijke Schippersvereniging Schuttevaer. The homebase was Zwijndrecht.
In April 2022 the institution itself amalgamated with another society representing entrepreneurs in the inland navigation, the Centraal Bureau voor de Rijn en Binnenvaart to form Koninklijke Binnenvaart Nederland (Royal Inland Navigation Netherlands). So far, no flag of this new society has been reported.
