The Waterways Journal serves the inland marine transportation industry. Its market, served since 1887, accounts for the vast majority of new construction projects in the U.S. It also features extensive coverage of the port, terminal and logistics side of the industry.
The Waterways Journal publishes a weekly, paid subscription trade magazine under the same name as well as two annual books to complement the weekly; the Inland River Record, a listing of working commercial vessels on the inland waterways and the Inland River Guide, a comprehensive directory to the industry.
The Waterways Journal, Inc. is also the producer of the Inland Marine Expo, a trade show exclusively focused on the inland, or brown-water, industry.
In addition the company has titles covering Dredging, Marina Management and Recreational Boating.
The Waterways Journal
The Waterways JournalIt all began in 1887. However, many readers may be surprised to learn that the original name of the paper was The River. It became The Waterways Journal with the April 9, 1892, issue. In looking back at the history of The Waterways Journal, one thing stands out-the dedication of its leaders. Through the years only five men have been responsible for gathering the news, editing, managing and publishing the paper. One should remember that this included some very rough years in the river business. It is reflected especially in the early period when the publication changed officers several times in a two-year period and also moved a number of times.
