Welcome to Tug & Barge.

tug and barge

The waters are always changing. Go with a firm that’s navigated them for more than a century.

We adapt our solutions to the distinct operational needs of tug and barge fleets.

There’s a difference between planning on paper, and actively preparing for the real world.

To understand the particular risks and liabilities that river-based and ocean towing operations experience, we put ourselves in your shoes again and again. This includes routinely participating in table-top casualty drills for oil spill and large loss scenarios. Doing so allows us to think clearly and critically during emergency events, when you need us to communicate with insurance partners, facilitate surveyor assignments, and engage necessary correspondents and counsel.

Planning only on paper simply isn’t enough for tug and barge fleets.

We also assist with contract reviews, and provide risk management advice.

Your critical challenges and exposures require more than just placing insurance. Our marine team provides a full range of management to support your needs. We bring the following coverages to tug and barge fleets:

  • Hull & machinery
  • Protection & indemnity (P&I)
  • Vessel pollution
  • Cargo
  • Terminal operators / wharfingers / stevedores liabilities
  • Bumbershoot / excess liabilities

Find out how we can support nearly any scenario for you.
