Founded in 1933, Canal Barge Company, Inc. is a family-owned, independent marine transportation company headquartered in New Orleans, Louisiana. The name “Canal Barge” dates back to their early years operating one barge exclusively along the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway.
Today they are one of the most diverse marine transportation companies in the country, moving highly valuable cargo to virtually every part of the world. Their greatest strength is in providing dedicated logistics in moving along the waterway between the Gulf Coast and Mid-America. Additionally, using their oceangoing deck barge fleet, they have made port calls on all coasts of the U.S. and foreign port calls in the Caribbean, Central and South America and even across the Atlantic Ocean.
Dedicated to long-term partnerships and tailor-made customer service, Canal Barge enjoys relationships with several Fortune 500 chemical and oil companies, as well as refineries, construction companies, fabricators, public utilities, engineering companies, and the United States Government.
