GREAT LAKES UNITIZED TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM
This project deals with the design of a unitized barge transportation system to serve the overseas general cargo trade of the Great Lakes region. The system is intended to reduce the amount of port time resulting from the need to stop at many Great Lake ports in order to obtain a full cargo load while also permitting unitization of the cargo in a size suitable for much of the cargo.
