… er …short sea shipping  (Shortsie Shipping) should save significant stress and other things.  Read my two previous posts here.  Shortsie is long-sighted:  imagine the foto below as about 100 trucks you don’t have to follow on the roads this morning.  And one tug–Catherine Turecamo–puts much less stuff into the air than 100 trucks.

The two engines here–Catherine Turecamo and Little Bear–move the goods of 100s of trucks, and fire red Little Bear is way cuter than any single truck.   More Little Bear soon.

GencoSuccess spent a week offloading its bulk cargo.  I’m not sure what it was, but let’s assume it was road salt;  too bad more of that salt is not

barged by Shortsie about once it’s local.

More boxes on a barge passed this morning also:  Barge New Jersey moves under the power of Cape Cod, taking another 100 trucks out of your traffic lanes.

Also, recyclables travel on barges, here

this one moved by Thomas D. Witte, dozens fewer trucks in your traffic lanes.   Thanks, Shortsie.   Anyone know of good websites on sixth boro and Hudson River efforts to promote Shortsie?   Bowsprite has been exerting many tons of bollard pull there herself: check it out.

Notice the Empire State Building blimp mooring in the background?
