Columbia Coastal Transport, an East Coast container barge operator, said that its Vessel Security Plan was approved by the US Coast Guard.. This approval remains valid for five years, and insures the company’s compliance with the final Maritime security requirements mandated by the Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA) of 2002. “Columbia Coastal is among the first companies to date that have had their Vessel Security Plans approved by the US Coast Guard,” said Bruce Fenimore, president of Columbia Coastal. “This indicates not only our commitment to serve our customers without interruption, but also to the ports and terminals that we call on a regular basis. As a US-flag operator, our commitment to security is paramount, and this early approval shows that we take that commitment seriously.”
