OSMS and YOU: Waterways Operations and Management

Our nation’s waterways are a critical component of the Marine Transportation System or MTS. The MTS is a highly integrated system that includes over 1,000 harbor channels and 25,000 miles of commercially navigable channels. It connects over 152,000 miles of railroad, 45,000 miles of interstate highway, and 460,000 miles of pipeline through nearly 2,000 terminals operated at over 360 deep and shallow draft ports.
