Tidewater Holdings is the largest provider of inland marine barge transportation services on the Columbia-Snake River system in the Pacific Northwest. The Company transports refined petroleum, grain, containers and other products on its fleet of barges.
In 2005, management contacted Endeavour to partner with them in acquiring the Company from its financial owners to bring ownership back to the Pacific Northwest. During Endeavour’s involvement, the management team became a significant owner, the Company began transporting a significant new product, and a program of reinvestment led to the launching of several new vessels and the acquisition of a competing carrier.
Endeavour and management sold the Company in 2012.
