About Barge Transportation
A barge is a flat-bottom boat, used primarily for transportation of dry and liquid bulk cargo on inland waterways.

Majority of barges are propelled with the help of a towboat or other vessels. Primarily, barges are non-mechanical in nature and are usually propelled by towing, but in recent times the market has witnessed a trend of using self-propelled barges
