Barges take logs to where they can be transported to sawmills for processing or to ports for export

Barges are an important mode of transport in the Marlborough Sounds, where road access can be difficult or non-existent, and they are a vital part of the forestry industry in the region.

Barge services transport harvested logs from forests in the Marlborough Sounds to Picton and Havelock where they can be transported to local sawmills for processing or exported from Port Marlborough at Shakespeare Bay.
