The 12,000-mile inland waterways network in the United States is a vital trade corridor serving energy, agriculture, and other freight shipments internally and for export. Major global events like the war in Ukraine and the resulting supply chain disruptions illustrate the importance of the system and create an urgent need for efficient movement of goods.
Eno’s newest report compares this system with other global rivers and shows how competition from other global waterways could limit this success if modernization of the system is not continued. In this report, the authors explore six rivers from around the world and demonstrate how recent investments might affect America’s competitiveness and national security.
