Towage

Towage operations for delivery of heavy-lift and oversized cargoes are part of the responsibilities of our Chartering Department.
  • We select optimal type and size of the barge in tandem with a tug keeping in mind weight and volume of the project.
  • In case cargo is floating object we select a tug of appropriate bollard pull capacity.
  • We draw up all necessary documentation for towing arrangements as well as very accurate stowage and lashing plan on board the barge.
  • Our team provides direct securing of cargo on board, following to regulations, standards and recommendations, set by producer, consignee, carrier and insurer of the goods.
For certain trade we also arrange transportation of bulk and general cargoes using barges in tandem with tugs.
