Foss Vessels Environmental Excellence

Monday, December 07, 2009

For 17 years, the Arthur Foss, a tugboat operated by the Foss Maritime Company, has been free of environmental mishap. So have the Drew Foss and a dozen other Foss vessels.  Sixty-seven vessels owned by Foss and three subsidiaries are being recognized by a major maritime organization for their standout environmental safety records.  The Chamber of Shipping of America (CSA) is honoring the Foss vessels along with vessels from three Foss subsidiaries - Gulf Caribe Maritime, America Cargo Transport, and Constellation Maritime.

Altogether, the Foss vessels feted by CSA have gone a combined 685 years without an environmental incident. Foss was honored at a dinner ceremony in Washington, D.C., with the awards presented by the U.S. Coast Guard commandant, Adm. Thad Allen and CSA Chairman Michael Bohlman of Horizon Lines. Capt. Jim Halloran accepted awards on behalf of Foss, and Susan Hayman, Vice President, Environmental and Corporate Development, accepted awards on behalf of Foss’ subsidiaries.
