TTB 2020 Update

Marine Log has continued to monitor the national situation regarding COVID-19, as well as the resulting travel restrictions enacted by many companies within our industry.

In response to this, we’re making adjustments to our August 2020 Tugs, Towboats & Barges event. In the coming weeks, we’ll be reaching out to our audience with full details.

With the industry putting maximum effort into getting back to “business as usual,” Marine Log wants to make sure that the tug, towboat, and barge communities have access to valuable information and vital services to support their continued success.

Thank you for your involvement in Marine Log TTB 2020, and we’ll have additional updates soon.
