Our River Towing unit is headquartered in Paducah, KY, at the crossroads of three major Inland waterways. The River Towing unit services all navigable inland waterways of the Mississipi River Basin and is the cheapest, most cost effective way to move bulk goods up and down the river. Our customers have chartered our barges for various materials such as coal, sand, rock, and grain. In addition to river barge towing, we provide outside towing services, barge and towboat chartering, and other types of marine towing.
