CBC Celebrates 75 Years!

On Saturday, December 6, 2008, Canal Barge Company, Inc. celebrated its 75th year in operation! Starting in 1933 with one barge — the first all-steel welded tank barge on the Inland Waterways — we have grown over the years to become one of the premier marine transportation companies in the country. Canal Barge now has over 550 employees, 800 barges and 33 inland towboats and an operation that trades all over the country, offshore and even internationally. Our long-term stability and growth are a result of the leadership, commitment and foresight of so many great people who came before us and the support of our Board of Directors and shareholders. Our company and our people have continuously innovated to take advantage of the opportunities that have been presented over the years.
