Marine Transportation

In the Marine Transportation segment, Kirby is primarily a provider of transportation services by tank barge for inland and coastal markets.

Kirby Inland Marine operates on the U.S. inland waterway system, which is composed of a 26,000-mile network of interconnected rivers and canals, of which 12,000 miles are used for domestic commerce.  Kirby’s industry leading fleet of inland tank barges transport bulk liquid cargoes, including petrochemicals, black oil, refined products, and agricultural chemicals for customers on the Mississippi River, its tributaries, and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway.

Kirby Offshore Marine operates along the U.S. coastal network and calls on ports along the Atlantic, Gulf and Pacific coasts, as well as ports in Alaska, Hawaii and on the Great Lakes. The coastal trade is vital to the U.S. cargo distribution system, particularly for the regional distribution of refined petroleum products, as well as transportation of black oil and petrochemicals. In addition, Kirby Offshore Marine operates two offshore barge and tugboat units which carry bulk sugar from Florida to sugar refining facilities along the East Coast.
