Product/Service Summary

AiroBarge is a company trying to transfer as much rail-road cargo-passenger load to Inland and coastal waterways using Innovative ship design and implementation strategies. Currently Inland waterways share is only 0.5% and Government wants to achieve 10% over the decades by virtue of SAGARMALA project. Indian Cargo transportation market will rise to $300 billion by 2020. Airobarge will try to capture as much possible.

AiroBarge carries around 30-70% extra cargo than conventional ship designs due to light weight technology which helps it to become viable for factory to doorstep logistics mixed of rail-road use. Due to light weight we can also design passenger vessels with 3000 pax capacity and 50km/hr speeds which is need if Mumbai for huge passenger transportation.
