Special Announcement: CBC Acquires 5 Towboats from Pine Bluff Sand & Gravel

Canal Barge Company is excited to announce that we have reached agreement with Pine Bluff Sand and Gravel (PBSG) to acquire five of their towboats and to offer employment to their 80 professional mariners who we are very pleased to welcome into the CBC Family. This transaction is a natural result of the deep and mutually successful partnership that we have enjoyed with PBSG for several years and is an important step to advance CBC’s Towboat Fleet of the Future strategy. The PBSG boats are extremely well-conditioned and ideally suited to CBC’s long-term needs. PBSG has indicated that they plan for CBC to continue to be their preferred partner for their marine transportation needs and we are enthusiastic about our future together. The vessels we are acquiring are as follows:

3- 6000 Horsepower Towboats

  • M/V Don Boling
  • M/V Bill Atkinson
  • M/V Gerald Majors

2- 1800 Horsepower Retractable Wheelhouse Towboats

  • M/V Bill Rodgers
  • M/V George Rowe

We welcome our newest teammates and these excellent vessels into our company and look forward to showing them why we believe that People Make the Difference at CBC!
