The Mississippi River handles a wide range of ship types and sizes: bulk carries, tankers, general cargo, container, and passenger ships. This is Crescent Towing’s largest operating port, where our services include ship escort, docking, and undocking from the mouth of the Mississippi River to Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
We also provide vessel mooring through a subsidiary company, Cooper/T. Smith Mooring, for vessels at all terminals, city-front docks, and mid-stream facilities. All tug operations and mooring personnel are coordinated by our centralized staff of experienced dispatchers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. One call to our New Orleans fleet office and your vessel will be safety and efficiently docked and securely moored in berth.
