Roiling on the Rivers

Admiral Karl Schultz, Commandant of the United States Coast Guard, invited Maritime Reporter & Engineer- ing News on a trek to New Orleans for an underway tour onboard a mid-stream transfer operation in the Mississippi River. As the U.S. inland waterway system has endured historic water levels for more than six months, the destination provided a perfect backdrop to discuss several key messages coming from USCG leadership: the maritime industry’s critical role in facilitating

U.S. commerce; the need for investment in Coast Guard and maritime infrastructure to keep that commerce ? owing; and the importance of collaboration between government and industry on the national, regional and local levels.
