register of privately-operated water transporters
Explanation:
Is this on inland waterways, coastal or sea-going? For inland waterways something like the above should cover it, possibly with 'inland' added.. There does not appear to be a ready-cooked phrase.
See http://www.canalcarrying.co.uk/ for example.
Otherwise use the word 'coastal' - but I'm having trouble finding an example.

neutral  polyglot45: la batellerie = bargees, so inland waterway by definition

  -> Thanks, PG. La batellerie is not automatically IW bargees - it can be e.g. inland water transport (IATE) among others but I agree 'inland' is most likely. In the past there were plenty of coastal barges for eg coal from Newcastle to London.
