Barges are large, flat-bottomed vessels used to transport cargo on inland waterways. They are typically towed by tugboats or pushed by rowboats.
For shipbuilders, barge design can vary depending on the type of cargo being transported. For example, tanker barges transport liquids, while dry bulk barges transport materials like grain or coal.
Barges need to be inspected regularly, including checking for hull damage and that cargo is secured correctly, to ensure they are safe and operational. It is also important that they undergo regular barge maintenance
