  • Interstate and Ocean Transport Company (IOT) has announced the recent opening of its new Southern Fleet Center at 2040 Guy N. Verger Boulevard, Tampa, Fla. The new center is strategically located in the Port of Tampa to support Interstate's Gulf Coast fleet of superbarges. These mammoth barges deliver petroleum and petrochemicals to ports along the Gulf Coast of the United States, in the Caribbean Islands, and in Mexico.

    Headquartered in Philadelphia, IOT is said to be the largest independent marine transporter of petroleum products in the United States. With their combined East Coast and Gulf Coast fleet of 53 barges and 37 tugs, Interstate serves ports as far north as Canada, all along the East and Gulf Coasts of the United States, and as far south as Puerto Rico.

    Interstate has been operating in the Gulf of Mexico for over 20 years. The company moves a large volume of oil from the Houston refining area to ports in the Southeastern United States.

    In the Port of Tampa alone, Interstate delivers approximately 19-million barrels of gasoline and jet fuel each year. A large volume of refined products is deliv- ered to this area, but it is estimated at least 50 percent of all the gasoline purchased in the State of Florida was transported by Interstate.
