Moran Towing won't rescue your stalled car, but the company will help ensure that your ship comes in. Moran Towing's fleet of tugboats helps ships get in and out of docks at more than a dozen ports along the US East and Gulf Coasts. Handling ships that carry liquefied natural gas (LNG) is a company specialty. Moran Towing charters its tugboats to customers through long-term contracts and on a spot basis. The company also provides barge transportation of petroleum products and dry bulk cargo and assists with ocean-based construction projects. Overall, the Moran Towing fleet includes about 100 tugboats and 30 barges. The company was founded in 1860.
