The Lydia Ann Channel Fleet is one of the largest fleets in Texas, and consists of over 8500 linear feet of steel moorings driven a minimum of thirty feet below the mud line with a minimum controlled depth of twelve feet of water. Their mission is to effectively and safely serve our customers’ maritime needs while protecting the wildlife and environment of our community.
In addition to chartering towboats, the company can accomodate CDC barges, hot oil barges, red flag barges, and hopper barges. Approximately two-thirds of the barges that use the LAC Fleet are empty and awaiting entry into the port to be loaded with cargo. Loaded barges carry a variety of cargoes, such as petrochemicals, chemicals, agricultural liquids, grains, rock and sand.
