Its carrying capacity is more in comparison to rail cars, trucks, and semi-trailers, thus making it more cost-effective mode of transportation. Majority of barges are propelled with the help of a towboat or other vessels. Primarily, barges are non-mechanical in nature and are usually propelled by towing, but in recent times the market has witnessed a trend of using self-propelled barges
