1 October 2010 Inland Waterways Freight Transportation and American Commercial Lines

2 2 Michael P. Ryan, President and CEO 2 The Inland Waterways Transportation Industry – The solution for relieving congestion on our nation’s highways and railways – The cleanest, safest, most fuel efficient and most economical mode of freight transportation

3 3 Inland Waterways Transportation The Inland Waterways Transportation Industry is an integral part of our nation’s economy, moving raw materials and cargo to our cities, industries and regions of agricultural production. Key Commodities Moving on the Inland Waterways * Chemicals & Petroleum 29% Coal 32% Grain & Agricultural Products 13% Minerals & Stone 19% Metals & Ores 5% Other 4% Million Tons Annually Source: March 2010 Informa Economics Barge Commodity Profile

5 5 Inland Waterways Transportation Contributes Significantly to the Nation’s Economy. — Contributes more than $5 billion to the U.S. economy annually — Employs over 500,000 U.S. workers in the industries supplied by inland waterways transportation — Transports – 20 percent of the nation’s coal for electricity generation – 60 percent of the all U.S. grain exports – Approximately 22 percent of domestic petroleum products — Directly serves over 87 percent of major U.S. cities Source: Texas Transportation Institute – 2008 National Waterways Foundation

6 6 Inland Waterways System The U.S. Inland Waterways - nearly 12,000 Miles of waterways and 240 Lock Sites Connecting 38 States Over 90 Million People Live within 100 Miles of the Mississippi River, Ohio River, and Gulf Intracoastal Waterways.

7 7 Each Year, 624 Million Tons of Cargo Are Transported on the Inland Waterways. Industry Traffic Flows Dry Cargo —Coal —Grain —Steel Products —Bulk Ores —Cement —Road Salt —Fertilizer —Alumina —Project Cargoes —Intermodal Containers Liquid Cargo — Chemicals - Styrene — Petroleum Products - Lube Oil - Gasoline - Diesel and Jet Fuels — Agricultural Products - Ethanol - Soybean Oil - Liquid Fertilizers Chemicals Grain Imports Coal Coal & Sand Coal Steel & Scrap Stone Imports

8 8 One Barge Tow Carries the Loads of Hundreds of Railcars or over a Thousand Trucks.

9 9 Barges Are the Most Efficient Mode of Transportation. Barge transportation is the most energy-efficient choice. Barges can move one ton of cargo 576 miles per gallon of fuel – that’s 163 miles further than railcars and 421 miles further than trucks. Ton-miles Traveled per Gallon of Fuel Source: Texas Transportation Institute – 2008 National Waterways Foundation

10 10 Barges Are the Cleanest Mode of Transportation. Barge transportation generates fewer emissions than railroads or trucks per ton-mile in the four standards tracked by the EPA: PM HC CO NOx PM HC CO NOx PM HC CO NOx Particulate matter (PM) Hydrocarbons (HC) Carbon monoxide (CO) Nitrogen oxides (NOx) Source: Texas Transportation Institute – 2008 National Waterways Foundation Grams per Ton-miles

11 11 Barges Are the Safest Mode of Transportation Fatalities ,171 Injuries Rate of Spills in Gallons per Million Ton-miles Spills of More Than 1000 Gallons Barge transportation has significantly fewer fatalities, injuries and spills than railroads or trucks.

12 12 A Congested U.S. Transportation System — An estimated 10,500 trucks per day per mile on the interstate highway system, projected to more than double by 2035 — Estimated $200 billion in costs each year — Approximately 4.2 billion hours in traffic each year — About 2.9 billion gallons of fuel each year U.S. Department of Transportation, Maritime Administration ( July 2009 Federal Highway Administration Report: Estimated Cost of Freight Involved in Highway Bottlenecks – Final Report, November 2008

13 13 The Future of the Nation’s Infrastructure — The Transportation Research Board projects a 70 percent increase in the nation’s output of goods and services by 2020 — Truck traffic is estimated to increase by 67 percent — The estimated annual cost to maintain current highways and bridges from 2005 to 2024 is $80 billion — Rail traffic is estimated to increase by 88 percent over the next 30 years – Railroads will need to spend $148 billion over the next 28 years, according to the Association of American Railroads — $8 to $9 billion will be needed for the nation’s transportation infrastructure over the next 30 years, according to the Corps of Engineers Transportation Research Board: Freight Capacity for the 21 st Century American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials: Freight-Rail Bottom Line Report AAR/Cambridge Systematics Inc. September 2007

14 14 Inland Waterways Are the Transportation Solution of the Future. — Barges on the inland waterways carry the equivalent of 58 million truck trips per year with capacity to spare — The U.S. inland waterways system is estimated to have 60 percent available capacity — If waterborne cargo was diverted to the highways or the railroads, — Truck traffic would double on the interstates — Railroad tonnage would increase 25 percent Source: Texas Transportation Institute – 2008 National Waterways Foundation
