to view the article in Waterways Journal
The Waterways Journal is the news journal of record for the towing and barge industry on the inland waterways of the United States, chiefly the watershed of the Mississippi River and its tributaries and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. Our customers are the barge companies, ports, terminals, fleets, shipyards, refuelers, shippers, suppliers and marine contractors that form the inland waterways transportation industry. Our audience operates over 25,000 barges and over 3,500 towboats and tugs.
Known as "The Riverman's Bible," the periodical has published continuously from St. Louis, Missouri, since 1887. It is the only American maritime publication that focuses exclusively on the inland waterways, and one of the few remaining family-owned, advertiser-supported trade weeklies of any description.
The publication's wide-ranging news articles provide a window into the people and technology behind a thriving major sector of industrial transport in the United States. Topics covered include inland shipyards, lock and dam construction, the Corps of Engineers, dredging news, inland ports and terminals, barge and towboat construction and launches, new technology relating to towboats, and regulations of the U.S. Coast Guard, Environmental Protection Agency, and other federal agencies that affect inland waterways commerce, as well as news about major commodities that travel the waterways, such as grain, coal, steel and fertilizer.
