Accounting for Marine and Shipping companies

With nearly 26,000 miles of inland waterway systems in the United States, barges and tugboats run some of the most important industries in the country. Additionally moving products via tugboat and barge is a much more cost-effective option than transporting via railways or roads. (A single 15-barge tow is equivalent to about 225 railroad cars or 870 tractor-trailer trucks.)  It’s not only economically efficient, but environmentally friendly too – with one gallon of fuel allowing transport up to 516 miles. (compared to trucking’s 180 miles and railway 400 miles) . The use of America’s inland waterways also provide tremendous savings in fuel consumption, a reduction in greenhouse gas omissions, and far fewer accidents than on railways and highways.


If you’re in the shipping and transportation business, you may find yourself concerned with not only reporting requirements, but also the current state of the economy, oil prices, global imports and exports, and government regulations.
