The barging markets are based solely on supply and demand and therefore rates will increase and decrease on a daily basis and at times, even throughout the day.
We are in daily contact with all of the barge lines and can quickly determine the mood of the market and help our clients move their spot freight more economically.
We move many different types of cargo on every navigable river system in the United States and we know exactly who to call for your commodity type and route and will have your rates back to you quickly. Our knowledge of the waterways can also assist you in planning delivery schedules to keep your shipments arriving on time when you expect them to.
For our non-USA barging requirements we rely on our close working relationships with our colleagues in that region and on their expertise in that arena.
Our operations team will keep up with all of your barges ensuring that you are informed on a very regular basis as we provide you with all the necessary information that you need to keep your shipment moving to its destination. In addition, we will review and approve all barge laytime calculations on your behalf and will resolve any conflicts.
