Barge Transfers in Australia are rare, especially on the importing side. More of this happens in Indonesia. In almost all cases, the transfer strategies are refined to the particular application in question and takes into account the faciltities and harbours available. (If you can choose the facilities and harbours you wanted, you would then not choose barge transfers to avoid the extra handling).
Your best bet is to discuss your particular application with an appropriate Engineer. Feel free to ask for those in your area.
