About Us

Established in 1995, Rushing Marine Service, L.L.C. began specializing in consulting and training of the American Waterways Operators (AWO) Responsible Carrier Program (RCP) and U.S. Coast Guard regulations. Since then, Rushing Marine has evolved into providing a variety of services to help our customers in the towing industry.

Waterways transportation is the most economical mode of commercial freight transportation due to the enormous capacity of a barge. It is difficult to appreciate the carrying capacity of a barge until you understand how much tonnage a single barge can move. For example, a typical inland barge has a capacity of 15 times that of one rail car, and 58 times greater than one semi-trailer truck. Today's fleet of nearly 4,000 modern tugboats and more than 28,000 barges moves more than 800 million tons of raw materials and finished goods each year.

ISO 9001:2015 Certification
