About Us


ACBL transports a wide variety of dry and liquid cargoes, including chemicals, petroleum, ethanol, grain, coal, steel, fertilizers, salt, containers, and project cargo throughout the 7,200 miles of U.S. inland waterways, operating one of the nation’s largest and youngest inland fleets.   

Having invested a billion dollars in the fleet and supporting operations over the past five years, ACBL is well equipped to provide the safest, most reliable and efficient service, and our operating priority is always the safety of our team, the marine environment and our customers’ cargoes. 

An integrated network of multi-modal transloading terminals extends our reach beyond the river. Our complete supply chain solutions expand access to the benefits of barging, which is significantly more economical, safer and greener than shipping by rail or truck.
