Understanding and Preventing Tug & Barge Risks
The maritime industry relies on tugboats and barges for a wide range of applications. Tugs are used to pilot vessels into and out of ports, while barges are used to transport bulk materials. The relationship between tugs and barges is critical, as most barges are not self-propelled and must rely on the skilled operation of a tug or tugs for propulsion.

At Merrimac Marine, we are dedicated to providing insurance for the marine industry to protect your clients’ business and assets.
