ICC Grants Hunter Marine Regulated Cargo Authority For Western Rivers

The ICC recently issued a certificate of public necessity, granting permanent authority to Hunter Marine Transport, Inc., Nashville, Tenn., to perform barge transportation of regulated cargo on the Cumberland and Tennessee Rivers and the connecting segment of the lower Ohio River.

This is the first permanent authority to be granted on the Western Rivers since 1975, and the first on these rivers in more than 10 years.

Hunter Marine has been transporting unregulated cargo on the Western Rivers for a number of years and operates a bulk terminal in Rock Harbor at Mile 175.5 Cumberland River with insured fleeting at Mile 176.

New terminal facilities and warehouses are under construction at riverside, separate from but adjacent to the bulk material operation. Hunter will soon offer a full range of intermodal services, including crating, custom brokerage, and full service storage.

Hunter intends to cooperate with carriers authorized on other waterways to p r o v i d e access for Nashville area business to through shipment of regulated cargo, and is looking forward to becoming a part of the Waterways Freight Bureau in the immediate future.
