Press release expected today, It seems like big moves from Centerline (formerly Harley Marine), acquiring several ATB’s with one being the Donna Bouchard and Barge B.272, 628ftx90ft 47ft draft 260k BBL barge) and their respective crews.
I imagine a fairly large shipyard effort to bring these vessels into service.
That’s a lot of equipment in addition to a very large existing fleet.
Maybe keeping the crews is a good thing for transitioning but… I’d weed out Morty’s ‘good old boys’ as quick as possible if I were Management.
They have also acquired, several FOSS barges earlier this year.
IIRC Bouchard a equipment are all mostly SOLAS class which will be a huge adjustment and learning experience for CLL.
