About Us

Mission:

To form long-term, mutually profitable partnerships with our customers by providing consistently high quality marine transportation, bulk liquid storage and management service, with zero spills and incidents.

History:

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 our early years when we operated one barge exclusively along the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway.

Today we are one of the most diverse marine transportation companies in the country, moving highly valuable cargo to virtually every part of the world. Our greatest strength is in providing dedicated logistics in moving along the waterway between the Gulf Coast and Mid-America. Additionally, using our oceangoing deck barge fleet, we 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. Canal Barge is in full compliance with the American Waterways Operators’ Responsible Carrier Program.
