Our Agribusiness Intelligence Consulting team led by Ken Ericksen was contracted by the UDSA to do an independent study on the Inland Waterway in the United States. They uncovered an aging US waterways transport system key to competitiveness for the US economy and farms, but the lack of investment threatens $72 billion in GDP growth.

The Agribusiness Intelligence study examined three scenarios:  

  • Potential impacts of reduced investment for US inland waterways
  • Maintaining the status quo of less than 2% growth
  • Help facilitate future export potential, with an increased investment of $6.3 billion over 10 years 

Visit the USDA site to see the full study.
