According to this item it will be available in a English and Italian version at a price of €50.
Are the English rules available? Also some more images are welcome.

Played this at Essen and enjoyed it. Select an order, load a container at Basel with your goods and then select mode and speed of transport (boat, train, lorry or plane) to reach your destination location down the Rhein (or on to London). Order is time bound and you must reserve a delivery destination to ensure your transport stops and delivers. Any idea when this will be released - the game demonstrator wasn't sure?

Also played at Essen and liked it. I was told they only had five copies so it wasn't for sale!

I was told it would be released within a month or so of Essen.

Have you played Panamax? I'm wondering how this compares to it, at first glance, the theme seems very similar in a good way. I love Panamax and I enjoy games from these designers as well, if this is a slightly lighter Panamax I'm definitely on board :-)

Not sure why but I hadn't thought to compare it to Panamax. I think it probably plays a bit easier as all the transportation is going in one direction and there isn't the difficulty of trying plan the circulation of die to avoid high fees (although you can still end up paying fees for goods). The contracts are not so limiting either, you can do some speculative shipping in the hope that you can later grab a contact and fulfill it with goods that are already on their way. All in all I think it a bit less constrained than Panamax and from playing a couple of rounds I may prefer this to Panamax.
