Rivers We Run: Atchafalaya River

We are equipped and staffed to run the Atchafalaya River down to the West Canal in a timely manner. The route from the Mississippi to the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) is 120 miles on the Atchafalaya River. The Port Allen route, by comparison, is 139 miles, and requires passing through the barge traffic and congestion of one additional lock. With 3,000-horsepower, retractable wheelhouse push boats fleeted at our Old River hub, Terral River Service has the equipment to move river barges on the Atchafalaya River at most water heights. This ability allows Terral RiverService to provide its customers with a quicker, simpler, more cost-effective transportation service route from the Mississippi River to ICW West locations.
