As part of its 20th anniversary celebration, Argosy Transportation Group (ATG) is sponsoring various professional events, and contributing toward initiatives in education within the maritime industry. ATG said it appreciates the importance of investing in young professionals, and the group remains committed to developing a platform for the future of the industry.

ATG said its commitment to trust and performance in transit is evidenced by its 20-year history. The company can trace its roots back to 1996 when Argosy Shipping was established by Rider Griswold, moving its first 76-ton shipment from Antwerp to Houston. At the time, the west-gulf had urgent need for a brokerage firm that could provide multipurpose ships to project-cargo owners and to the freight forwarding community, ATG said. Argosy Shipping spearheaded the way, enabling freight forwarders to charter ships by offering contractual and operational chartering services. 

During the following 20 years, the group evolved from a shipping brokerage firm, to becoming a diversified maritime transportation and logistics company, now operating three main divisions – barging, shipping and technical services – both domestically and internationally.
