A ship is a large, self-propelled vessel designed for open seas and oceans, equipped with engines, navigation systems, and accommodations for crew and passengers. Ships can transport goods, passengers, and conduct various operations like fishing and research.

A barge, in contrast, is a flat-bottomed vessel primarily used in rivers and canals. Barges are usually not self-propelled and are towed or pushed by tugboats. They are designed to carry heavy loads, such as bulk goods and materials, over shorter distances in calm waters. The main differences lie in propulsion, navigational capabilities, and usage purposes.

Stevedoring is the process of loading and unloading cargo from ships in a port. Stevedores, or dock workers, are responsible for handling, moving, and securing goods on and off the vessels. This work involves operating cranes, forklifts, and other machinery to ensure efficient and safe cargo transfer. Stevedoring is a critical part of port operations, facilitating the smooth flow of goods in maritime trade.

The tariffs for the St. Lawrence Seaway in Green Bay cover various fees for using the waterway, including tolls for transiting vessels, cargo handling charges, and specific service fees.

For precise and up-to-date information, it’s best to refer to the official St. Lawrence Seaway website or contact the Seaway directly. The tariffs can vary based on the type of vessel, cargo, and specific services required. Detailed tariff schedules are typically published annually on Seaway’s official site.

Some drawbacks include not building equity, possible rent increases, and having less control over the property in terms of modifications and usage. Additionally, there's always a risk that the lease may not be renewed at the end of its term​.

Currently, there are periodic shortages of both barges and ships due to various factors. These can include supply chain disruptions, increased demand for shipping, labor shortages, and geopolitical events. For instance, high demand for shipping goods, especially during peak seasons, can lead to a shortage of available vessels. Additionally, delays in shipbuilding and maintenance can exacerbate these shortages. The specific situation can vary over time, so it is advisable to consult recent industry reports or news sources for the most current information on barge and ship availability.

To find a barge:

1. Contact Barge Companies: Reach out to barge service providers for availability and costs.

2. Online Directories: Use marine transportation directories to locate barge services.

3. Industry Associations: Consult associations like the American Waterways Operators (AWO) for recommendations.

4. Freight Brokers: Engage freight brokers to connect with barge operators.

5. Port Authorities: Contact local port authorities for barge services information.

6. Online Marketplaces: Use shipping and logistics platforms to find and book barge services.
