Test to determine viability of shipping via barge from Paducah

Two organizations are teaming up to test out a way to ship products from Paducah.

The Paducah-McCracken County Riverport Authority and Ingram Barge Company announced that they plan to test the viability of Intermodal River Transportation.

The Paducah Riverport Authority will use their new crane to load empty shipping containers onto an Ingram barge. The barge will then travel to the port of St. Louis and then back to Paducah for unloading.

The trial run will test the logistics of moving shipping containers via a barge.
