Ingram Barge Company today completed its acquisition of U.S. United Barge Line, LLC (“UBL”), a barge transportation company headquartered in Tampa, Florida.


The proposed transaction was announced on April 19 and, following the receipt of necessary government approval and satisfaction of other closing conditions, Ingram officials said today they had finalized the sale and that the process of integrating the UBL business will begin immediately. Approximately 300 UBL associates will join Ingram, and 17 towboats and some 650 barges will be added to the Ingram fleet. Orrin H. Ingram, Chairman of the Board of Ingram Barge Company, said the combined businesses will enable Ingram to continue its leadership role in the inland marine industry. Craig E. Philip, CEO of Ingram Barge Company, said the transaction underscores Ingram’s commitment to its customers and to the robust future of inland transportation.
