LASH BARGES Back >>


The barges, all of a standard size with cargo capacity of 385 tons, are towed in ports and on inland waterways to various shipping points where they are loaded with cargo and then returned to the oceangoing vessel. They are hoisted aboard by a special shipboard gantry-type crane and transported overseas where the process is reversed. LASH ships do not require special docks or terminals. A wide variety of commodities and manufactured goods are handled by lash barges. These include pipe, vehicles, pallets, bagged cargo, forest products, and bulk. Once loaded, LASH BARGES are water tight with hatch covers for each barge secured. LASH BARGES are considered vessels.
