  • Abstract:
    The (MoDOT) retained TranSystems to identify and review low-flow industry trends, equipment and strategies used in inland navigation settings throughout the United States and worldwide which may be transferable to the Missouri River and which could support an increase in barge activity on the Missouri River. TranSystems undertook several tasks to accomplish the study objectives, as follows: Low-Flow Issues of the Missouri River – an evaluation of current challenges faced by tugs and barges operating on the Missouri River. Interview Survey – a survey to determine challenges of moving cargo on the Missouri River and potential solutions to support expansion of cargo activity. Organizations interviewed include shippers of cargo, terminal operators, tug and barge operators, and government agencies. Market Analysis and Trends –a review of historical trends in cargo activity on the Missouri River and developments in the barge industry. Best Practice Identification – an evaluation of low-flow technologies used on other river systems in the U.S. and Europe. Potential Technology Solutions – based on the interview survey and technology evaluation, the identification of potential solutions that could support cargo activity on the Missouri River. Public Sector Benefits and Costs – proposed policy actions for MoDOT, and their impacts.
