Tracking Barge Traffic on the Ohio River....

The sheer size of the vessels that make up the Ohio River barge traffic can be intimidating and awe-inspiring at the same time. These ships are critical to so many aspects of the economy, not the least of which is to haul raw materials used to generate electricity. We are often asked about details of the barges and never really had a good answer; that is now changed. We recently learned of a website where one can track the progress of some of the Ohio River barge traffic. For more information about the specific vessel, check out this link to Ingram Marine Group vessels on the Ohio and other rivers. This link provides location tracking information and other details of these cool vessels (i.e. date built, height, etc)
