Why You Should Use Barging As A Supply Chain Strategy

In any business, efficiency is one of the most important things to concentrate upon. Being efficient is the only way a company can stay in business for very long. Of course, a successful business also must have a product or service that people want and are willing to pay for. But even if your product or service is top-notch, you won’t be able to compete if your logistics system isn’t up to scratch.

Barge logistics is an emerging transportation infrastructure that is working to improve our global and national infrastructure. Barge logistics offers a direct and immediate alternative to standard shipping and rail transport.

In land-based industries, most goods are transported by road. However, this is not always economically or environmentally efficient, particularly if long distances are involved. Barges may provide a cheaper and more environmentally friendly method of transporting goods from one port to another. Benefits of barge logistics include:

1. Navigational safety

2. Cost-effectiveness.

3. Improvement of the hinterland vessel turnaround time (higher productivity), because of a reduction of the number of calls in the port

4. Improvement of the cost and reliability performance of barge hinterland services

5. A better utilization of space at marine terminals as the dwell time of containers at marine terminals can be reduced if the barge hub terminal can also facilitate a storage function for (empty) containers.

6. Environmentally most friendly type of cargo transportation

7. A higher crane/quay productivity, because the average productivity of handling containers in large call sizes is higher.
