BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The ports of New Orleans and Greater Baton Rouge have received a $1.75 million federal grant to acquire specialized container loading equipment to increase efficiencies for a container-on-barge shuttle service between the two ports.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/2enhzZn) the shuttle service is a regularly scheduled container-on-barge service for exports moving from the Baton Rouge area to the Port of New Orleans, where the containers are loaded onto container vessels.

Port officials say SEACOR AMH, operator and developer of the shuttle service, and Ports America, the terminal operator at the Port of New Orleans and Port of Greater Baton Rouge, were also strategic partners in obtaining the grant.
