B.R. Anderson & Co. provides a full service when it comes to tugs and barges. We are the marine agents that specialize in this department and have more industry knowledge in this area than any other agency does. We primarily work with outfits transporting cargo between the United States and Canada, but also work with outfits that transport in and out of Mexico, the Pacific Islands, Central America, South America and through the Panama Canal. With so many rules and regulation imposed by U.S. Customs and other government agencies, it is our job to advise our clients on how best to deal with unique situations. The Tug & Barge business has many subtle, but important, requirements that can go overlooked and can warrant lofty penalties. Our knowledge of the industry and our constant involvement with U.S. Customs rules and regulations at various ports ensure our clients that they are getting the best service possible.
It is well known within the industry that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) interpret the rules and regulations differently at various ports. Through our extensive work at many of these ports, B.R. Anderson & Co. is familiar with individual port requirements for the arrival or departure on any vessel or cargo and work with our clients and with U.S. Customs to make their transaction as smooth as possible.
