Canal Barge Receives Recognition from New Orleans and South Louisiana

Canal Barge Company recently received recognition from two publications about our importance to the economy of New Orleans and South Louisiana.  ‘New Orleans CityBusiness’ listed CBC as #8 in its annual ‘Top 100 Private Companies’ in the New Orleans area (based on revenue). Canal Barge has continued to move higher in this annual listing as we have grown our operations over the years. 

’10/12′ magazine, a publication that features news and profiles of businesses and businesspeople along the Interstate 10 & Interstate 12 corridor (encompassing southern Louisiana, including the New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, and Lake Charles metro areas), listed CBC as one of ’50 Companies We Can’t Do Without’ in its May 2010 issue.  Selection criteria was based on: “1) important because of their national or global footprint, 2) notable for innovation, 3) good corporate citizens, and/or 4) critical to key industries, be they the bedrock industries we depend on today or the high-growth industries we hope to build in the future.”

Canal Barge is pleased to receive this external recognition, which we believe is an outgrowth of our long-term vision,  consistent management, and focus on our strategy.
