We're one of the nation’s fastest-growing providers of marine transportation solutions with the comprehensive, diversified capabilities that make us an industry leader.
Marquette has three operations, with a strategic mix of vessels powered with the latest marine technology and equipment to ensure safe, reliable, on-time service. Founded in 1978, our River unit now offers a fleet of more than 50 line haul vessels and 800+ dry cargo barges. In 2007, we added our Gulf-Inland unit (formerly Eckstein Marine) and our Offshore unit (formerly HLC Tugs) to create a seamless transportation experience for our customers.
With a long history of service excellence and a reputation for getting the job done safely and on time, we set a higher standard for marine transportation year after year.
