A healthy transportation system is a good investment

A Healthy Transportation SystemIs a Good Investment

  • Barging is the lowest cost, most environmentally friendly form of freight transportation

  • Low transportation costs enable growers to price commodities at levels the world can afford to buy

  • Half of Columbia River wheat exports arrive by barge; 25% of the export containers arrive by barge

  • Over 59,000 Northwest jobs are dependent or strongly influenced by Columbia River maritime commerce


Strengths of the system

Strengths of the System
