Modern Day Use of barges, especially in the recycling business

Modern barges can carry 500 tonnes each – and more. They can take traffic off congested roads. Due to their fuel efficiency, they produce far less pollution than lorries. So using barges helps meet corporate social responsibility targets. Most of the UK ports are served by major inland waterways and so are well placed for exports/imports. The speaker will discuss the opportunities in the recycling and waste industry.
