Port Captain & Supercargo Services

Tidal Transport - Supercargo

Bulk Cargo Handling

Tidal USA has cargo handling grabs available for short term rental to our principals. Recognizing the need for modern and efficient grabs, often at short notice, our grabs are based on the Columbia River but can readily be relocated to meet a demand for service.

A Tidal USA mechanic is normally allocated to attend grab operations to assist with training and efficient utilization but also to perform regular maintenance between working shifts.
