WHO WE ARE
We are a local Puerto Rican family owned and operated company. Most of our employees are from the towns where we operate out of, besides a healthy amount of family members. We are fully aware of the fact that we mainly assist vessels that bring energy related products to Puerto Rico and we maintain our tugs in optimal operational conditions.
WHAT WE DO
Our core business is terminal towage. We also provide back-up for the salvage companies when they need additional tugs for salvage operations in the area. We are always on stand by to perform rescue tows when needed.
Another service we provide is through the ownership and operation of a 5200 Ton deck cargo barge with a cargo bin wall and a stern ramp capable of moving aggregates, construction materials, scrap metal and any other cargoes that require open deck space. We have been moving cargoes throughout the caribbean during the last 5 years.
WHERE WE DO IT
We mainly perform terminal towage services in the harbors of the east and south east end of the island of Puerto Rico; specifically the Harbors of Guayama, Yabucoa, Aguirre and once a month we service the Eco Electrica Terminal in the Peñuelas Harbor.
The transportation of aggregates,construction equipment, scrap and other general cargoes are mainly performed between the Islands of Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Grand Cayman, the Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands.
Presently, we are transporting salt in bulk from a place called Las Coloradas in the north side of the Yucatan Peninsula to Puerto Cortes, Honduras and Puerto Barrios, Guatemala.
