Cargo Transportation

We specialize in moving barges. Whether the barge is carrying a million dollar piece of electrical equipment or an empty dumpster, we guarantee safe delivery. The SHENANDOAH is capable of getting your barge into places most tugs can't go.

We now have use of small barges for bridge inspections, cargo transportation into shallow waters, waterside construction for buildings fronting and over the water and a ramp barge for getting your equipment and personnel to islands and remote places.

Ship Docking
Ships and Barges
Intracoastal Transportation is the perfect choice for your assist into Port. Whether you have a tandem tow, or just need an assist at the dock, we can help. Our Captains have considerable experience with difficult barge movements.

Shipyard Movements
We can move barges and/or boats into drydocks, graving docks and railways or reposition boats and barges at the dock for work. We'll run the containment booms around your vessel or docks and we will handle pollution control for you. We also can help with underwater surveys at the shipyard to help determine placement of blocks.

Other Vessel Movements
Intracoastal Transportation is available for you in any Eastern U.S., NY State Canal and Great Lakes port and for assisting vessels, such as liftboats and other marine construction vessels, through unfamiliar waters.
