“We are the largest tug operator in the Americas, with more than 150 vessels distributed from Prince Rupert, Canada, to the far south of Chile. We want our new website to be a meeting point for our customers, where they can also keep up to date on our news,” commented SAAM Towage’s CEO, Felipe Rioja.
