Transmarine Navigation Corporation, a leading U.S. tramp ship agency with offices in a dozen port cities along the Gulf Coast, West Coast, and Hawaii, recently hosted a company-wide celebration to commemorate its 85th Anniversary.

The multi-office event, held simultaneously on October 24, brought together staff at Transmarine’s New Orleans, Hawaii, San Francisco, Stockton, Long Beach, Portland, Seattle, and Bellingham locations for a coast-to-coast celebration in recognition of “85 Years of Service Excellence.”

“We’re thrilled to celebrate such a landmark achievement,” said Leslie Clements, Transmarine Managing Director. “From deck crews, to accountants, to veteran management, it’s been a team effort from the start. It’s great to see so many of our dedicated staff receive the recognition they deserve, and we look forward to many more years of working diligently together to keep our clients’ fleets safe, shipshape, and on-schedule.”
