Inland Marine Service Announces New Agreement to Operate All Tennessee Valley Towing Vessels
Thursday, September 19, 2019
Marine Service (IMS) has entered a new vessel management agreement with
Tennessee Valley Towing (TVT), as announced today by Dave Hammond,
President of IMS. As a result of the deal, IMS will be responsible for operating
TVT’s entire fleet of more than twenty towboats on the Inland Waterways.
“Crewing and operating towboats has
become more and more difficult each year.
IMS’s existing business model of towboat operation enables it to hire
crew from a broader area and manage those crews more effectively. Turning these functions over to IMS will
allow TVT to operate more efficiently and to thrive long-term and continue to
grow. We feel this strategic partnership
with IMS will help in our growth initiatives in many ways,” said
Jeff James, President of James Transportation.
“The 800+ proud, professional mariners of IMS feel
honored that the JAMES family and TVT entrusted us with their line haul fleet.
Our vessel crews and shoreside teams strive to add great value daily,” said Dave
Hammond, President of IMS.
addition to the 20+ towboats IMS is operating for TVT, IMS provides vessel
management services for AMERICAN Commercial Barge Lines, INGRAM Barge Company,
Apex Oil, Campbell Transportation, and CROUNSE Corporation. IMS operates on the
Inland Waterway System and ICWW moving dry and liquid cargoes.
is the latest company to benefit from Inland Marine Service’s turn-key
solutions, which ensures that each client is instantly compliant with personnel
and shore-side management requirements of Sub-M. IMS undergoes all audits in
place of their clients and saves them from having to hire safety and compliance
personnel. IMS compliance programs are immediate, approved and certified in the
changing regulatory worlds of the Responsible Carrier Program, TMSA, and SIRE.
