Subchapter M is here!.

We know Sub M and can confidently help your company to become Sub M-compliant. It took 12 years to get here and we used the time wisely. We are ready for Sub M and you will be too!




Tug & Barge Solutions has developed a Towing Safety Management System that meets all of the requirements of the ISM Code, The AWO RCP, and Sub M NPRM requirements. We have incorporated TMSA 2 into the plan and our focus is on continuous improvement.

The feedback that we hear about other systems is the lack of personal attention and one-size fits all approach of the other plans.

We take that to heart. The plan we help develop is yours and we will support you in every way to successfully implement it.



Part of our service includes regular audits of your system and vessels to help bring you into compliance with federal regulations as well as conformance with your Safety Management System. We have auditors certified to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 19011 as well as ISM.

The goal of the audits is improvement and we will provide you with in-depth audits and the experience in the industry to help you become better in all areas.



Tug & Barge Solutions offers Towing Safety Management System development and training for both shore-side and vessel personnel, towing vessel and barge surveys, Vessel Security Plans, Vessel Response Plans and US Coast Guard Uninspected Towing Vessel (UTV) exam preparation.


Tug & Barge Solutions will enable you to change as the regulatory and business climate change and all the time becoming a more stable, productive and profitable company.


Our staff comes from the towing industry.  Tug and Barge Solutions' principal partners have owned and worked for towing companies on the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts, inland waterways and Great Lakes bringing seven decades of towing and business experience to the company. 
Tug & Barge Solutions offers its services to towing vessel operators on the Atlantic, Gulf and Pacific coasts as well as on the inland waterway system and Great Lakes.

Tug & Barge Solutions’ focus on the entire corporate culture helps infuse safety and compliance into every facet of an organization as well as eliminate waste and increase efficiency and effectiveness which will translate into profitability and long-term growth.

We understand the pressures on a towing company and will work with you to help you achieve compliance and profitability.


We are looking for a new addition to the team. It's an entry level position and is based in Daphne, AL
