Several water transportation concepts that might prove useful in the future are discussed in general terms. Some have already been developed and others are in the exploratory stage. They are--the barge carrying ship; transocean tug-barges (surface tows and subsurface tows); high speed displacement ships; roll-on/roll-off ships/sea sheds (super containers); surface effect ships; integrated bulkers; waterborne feeder systems; and floating terminals.
