Barge transportation involves using flat-bottomed boats called barges to transport cargo and goods along waterways such as rivers, canals, and coastal areas. Tugboats typically tow barges and can carry a wide variety of cargo, including bulk materials such as coal, grain, and petroleum products, as well as containers and other freight. Barge transportation is an efficient and cost-effective way to move large quantities of goods over long distances, particularly for heavy or bulky cargoes that would be difficult or expensive to transport by road or rail. It also has the advantage of being environmentally friendly, as it produces fewer emissions than other modes of transportation.
