HOST sails first vessel on Mississippi with 50 feet draft
(Posted on 12/08/22)
T. Parker Host has announced the largest amount of cargo ever loaded on the Mississippi River on 6th August sailing from United Bulk Terminals and coordinated by Host Agency.
The M/V Capri loaded over 134,000 metric tons of coal from Javelin Global Commodities, making this vessel the first to sail with a draft of 50 feet on the river. HOST have served again as both the vessel agent and terminal operator for another historic voyage on the river.
In a statement, the company HOST said, “With a presence on the river for over a decade, HOST is proud to have participated in the phase of reaching 50 feet in 2022. We will continue to support the long-term efforts to reach a 55 feet draft. This announcement follows other draft milestones on the river, issued in December, 2021 and March, 2022.
This is a celebration for commerce on the river, and the culmination of many years of industry efforts and partnership between the River Pilots, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Coast Guard, port officials, elected representatives, six different governors and the entire maritime community to be able to accommodate vessels with larger drafts – bringing more commerce to the Mississippi River.”
