This is an exciting time with the confluence of two leaders in inland barge transportation. American Commercial Barge Lineʼs purchase of AEP River Operations has made us stronger, more diversified, and better equipped than ever to deliver value for our customers and meet the evolving needs of the marketplace.
With natural synergies between our teams, fleets, and operations; a shared commitment to the safety of our teammates, our customersʼ cargoes, and the marine environment, we are well prepared to navigate this transition. As we iron out the details over the next few months, we are committed to transparency and ongoing communication, with our customers, vendors, and business partners. We will provide updates and communicate any changes directly well in advance of their implementation. In addition, we will post the latest information on how we are maximizing our collective strengths to enhance every aspect of our operations.
We thank you for your support as we set a bold new course for the future and welcome you aboard the new ACBL.
