River Code System

The inland barge transportation industry uses a river code system to identify pick-up and delivery locations for barges. Two-letter codes identify the location of rivers, canals, segments, and mile markers along the 7,200 miles of U.S. inland waterways. For example, ACBL’s corporate headquarters in Jeffersonville, IN is located on the Ohio River, 602.20 miles from the eastern-most origin of the river, with a river code of OR602.20. Below is a listing of the river codes for the inland waterways served by ACBL.
