Why should we consider chartering your barge instead of from other operator?

In addition, we own and operate a considerable size of fleet. In the industry, it is not uncommon for the tug boats/barges to be delayed due to various circumstances such as weather and mechanical break-down. In our case, we own a fleet large enough to position back-up/replacement barges in such circumstances to mitigate delay. 

All our tug boats and barges undergo regular maintenance to ensure their top-notch performances and minimum down-time. 

Charterers are also very happy with our daily on-time reports of the vessel movements which enable smooth operation of loading and discharge activities.
