Forty-three Bouchard Transportation Co., Inc. vessels have been honored by The Chamber of Shipping America (CSA) with Certificates of Environmental Achievement.  The awards, given out on Thursday, November 13, recognize vessels that have operated for two full years or more without an environmental incident.  In total, the 43 vessels achieved the equivalent of 601 years without incident

“These commendations are a testament to the hard work of both our safety department and our vessel employees,” said Morton S. Bouchard III, President and CEO of Bouchard Transportation Co., Inc.  “At Bouchard Transportation we have made the safety of our crew and the environment a priority.  It is always an honor to be recognized for that.”  

Twenty-four of the honored vessels have gone without environmental incident for 10 or more years, including the Evening Tide with 44 years; the Morton S. Bouchard Jr. with 39 years; the Evening Mist with 37 years; the B. No. 255 with 35 years; and the Capt. Fred Bouchard and the Rhea I. Bouchard, each with 32 years without incident.
