What are Coastal Service? Providing Safe and Prompt Coastal Services by Barges
Based at Mizushima Port and Hiroshima Port, we utilize coastal barges and flat top barges to provide harbor transportation/coastal transportation. A flat top barge is a flat-bottomed vessel designed to carry heavy cargo from ship to wharf, and from shore to the wharves of other harbors. Coastal barges carries feed, grain, and steel products, while flat top barges handle hull blocks and plants.
- Barges do not have engines and cannot sail by itself, and are towed by tugboats instead.
