Offering nearly 30,000 square feet of deck space, SeaTac Atlas is one of the larger barges in the Pacific cargo trade.

Seattle, Wash., based SeaTac Marine Services has acquired a new heavy deck cargo barge.

Built in 2010, and now named SeaTac Atlas, the barge can haul up to 11,000 tons and, with nearly 30,000 square feet of deck space, is one of the larger barges in the Pacific cargo trade.

The 300 foot long, 100 foot wide barge was purchased from Signet Maritime in late 2020.

SeaTac Marine specializes in carrying general cargo and heavy lift machinery, and says the SeaTac Atlas will fit well into its regular shipping schedule to Anchorage and Seward. SeaTac Marine is modifying the barge to maximize cargo protection and space.

“We are looking forward to increased opportunities and optimizing service for new and existing customers,” says Walter Seay, SeaTac Marine’s president.

Sited on its own twelve-acre parcel along the Duwamish river, the SeaTac terminal specializes in break bulk cargo, lumber, heavy lift machinery, and bulk commodities.
