About This Item


Full Description

Describes the procedure to determine a fixed barge/shore ratio that can be used either when no reliable vessel experience factor (VEF) is available or to verify & validate an existing VEF. The resultant ratio may be used as a " control factor" to ascertain a corrected barge volume for comparison against future shore delivery or receipt volumes. These procedures apply to a single transfer between the shore and the barge, using a light or medium product or chemical with an approximate volume of at least 80% fill of the barge capacity. This publication should be utilized for inland waterway barges. Ocean-going barges should use the VEF method.
