Seaspan Marine Fleet Productivity


On April 16 Seaspan announced that due to the loss of customers in their aggregate and forestry divisions they were forced to make changes in their marine fleet operations in order to increase efficiencies.  Some of the changes include the move of two harbour tugs to call out status and taking two river and two coastal tugs out of service and chartering out that work.
