Now, with great ease, anyone can peruse this valuable research tool to learn facts, figures and statistics about this vital industry," said Barry Palmer, President & CEO of Waterways Work! "We commend Maritime Administrator Bill Schubert and his MarAd team for quickly and effectively putting this website together," he continued.
