Barge Fleet Profile 2019
Purchase the latest Barge Commodity and Fleet Profiles delivered by IEG Vantage
IEG Vantage's continuing study, "The Barge Fleet Profile," is now in its 32nd year of public distribution. It seeks to identify the line haul, commodity carrying fleet of inland barges operating on the Mississippi River System, its connecting waterways and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. Data and information are gathered through an annual survey of operators, personal contact, use of available Corps of Engineers and Coast Guard statistics and reference to the author's historic research materials.
IEG Vantage's has released its 16th annual "Barge Commodity Profile" report. Like the Barge Fleet Profile, this report will prove to be an invaluable resource. The analytic report of historical information incorporates the domestic internal waterborne commerce data of the Army Corps of Engineers by type of barge movement. IEG Vantage then reconciles these movements with the available fleet size from the Barge Fleet Profile Report by barge type to derive IEG Vantage's exclusive Barge Pressure Indices for covered and open Barges.
