A little over five years ago there was no container transportation system on the USA's Columbia/Snake waterways. Today however, container transport is a well established part of the river network's commercial life.

Barge operators, port authorities and other bodies have all placed a considerable amount of effort into making the concept viable. To date annual increases in traffic have been high and despite some contradictions to the contrary there are reasons to suggest that this level of momentum will continue.
