3 Mississippi River System

4 “It is the longest river in the world…it seems safe to say that it is the most crooked river in the world, since in one part of its journey it uses up to one thousand three hundred miles to cover the same ground that the crow would fly over in six hundred and seventy-five.” – Mark Twain

5 Barge Transportation

6 Fuel efficient: Upper Mississippi River towboats can move 514 ton-miles with one gallon of fuel. Lower Mississippi = 1,200 ton-miles*. *Environmental Advantages of Inland Barge Transportation (1994) – U.S. Department of Transportation.

7 Barge Transportation - 2 One study showed that one gallon of fuel can move one ton Environmental Advantages of Inland Barge Transportation (1994) – U.S. Department of Transportation

8 Barge Transportation - 2 One study showed that one gallon of fuel can move one ton –59 miles by truck. Environmental Advantages of Inland Barge Transportation (1994) – U.S. Department of Transportation

9 Barge Transportation - 2 One study showed that one gallon of fuel can move one ton –59 miles by truck. –202 miles by rail. Environmental Advantages of Inland Barge Transportation (1994) – U.S. Department of Transportation

10 Barge Transportation - 2 One study showed that one gallon of fuel can move one ton –59 miles by truck. –202 miles by rail. –514 miles by barge. Environmental Advantages of Inland Barge Transportation (1994) – U.S. Department of Transportation

11 Barge Transportation - 3 Mode comparisons, BTUs of energy per ton-mile of cargo. Environmental Advantages of Inland Barge Transportation (1994) – U.S. Department of Transportation.

12 Barge Transportation - 3 Mode comparisons, BTUs of energy per ton-mile of cargo. –Truck = 2,100. Environmental Advantages of Inland Barge Transportation (1994) – U.S. Department of Transportation.

13 Barge Transportation - 3 Mode comparisons, BTUs of energy per ton-mile of cargo. –Truck = 2,100. –Rail = 670 (coal train 370) Environmental Advantages of Inland Barge Transportation (1994) – U.S. Department of Transportation.

14 Barge Transportation - 3 Mode comparisons, BTUs of energy per ton-mile of cargo. –Truck = 2,100. –Rail = 670 (coal train 370) –Barge = upstream 580, downstream 220. Environmental Advantages of Inland Barge Transportation (1994) – U.S. Department of Transportation.

15 Barge Transportation - 4 Carrying capacity.

16 Barge Transportation - 4 Carrying capacity. –1,500-ton barge = 15 large rail cars or ton truck trailers.

17 Barge Transportation - 4 Carrying capacity. –1,500-ton barge = 15 large rail cars or ton truck trailers. –Typical barge tow of 15 barges (22,500 tons of freight) = 225 rail cars or ton truck trailers.

18 Barge Transportation - 5 Disadvantages.

19 Barge Transportation - 5 Disadvantages. –Slow, limiting it to bulk commodities not susceptible to damage/loss by weather, theft.

20 Barge Transportation - 5 Disadvantages. –Slow, limiting it to bulk commodities not susceptible to damage/loss by weather, theft. –Reliability is lessened due to weather, winter, low or high water.
