Arkansas River Barge Traffic Up from 2019

According to news report, barge traffic along the Arkansas River is performing strong, and some of that is due to greater movement of agricultural commodities. It also is due to improved mobility from the previous year where the river experienced high water. Tonnage shipped on the river during the first nine months of 2020 totaled 7.679 million tons, up 30.4% compared with the same period in 2019. September shipments totaled 768,285 tons, up 43.3% compared with September 2019.
