Nashville's Ingram Barge Co. lays off 47 employees

Ingram Barge Co. has laid off 47 employees, a move related to a drop in its business of hauling grains, coal and other bulk goods down the Mississippi and other rivers.

The layoffs last week affected a mix of employees who work in offices and on the company's boats, including 21 people who were based in Nashville.

“Any business has to constantly balance their staffing with the volume of work to be done," said Ingram spokesman Keel Hunt, who also writes columns for The Tennessean. "That's what happened here."
