A new tug operator joins the program

September 2, 2016

Ledcor owns and operates nine tugboats and twenty-two barges, making it one of the largest marine operations serving natural resources and industrial customers in Southwest British Columbia (BC). Their tugs are based in Richmond, BC in the North Arm of the Fraser River, with one vessel working full time in Victoria. They can be deployed to any area along the southern BC coast in a timely manner. Marine services include ship assist, barge and marine towing services, and emergency marine services. Ledcor works in unison with their forestry operations to provide closed-loop supply chain services for the forestry industry. Ledcor’s specially designed and constructed barges feature higher sides, which allow for high volume transport of fibre and other low-density materials.
