We are a nimble and dynamic organisation with quick decision making at all levels
Other Business: Towage

Substantially all of Pacific Basin’s US$2 billion in long-term assets is invested in our core dry bulk business. However, we also maintain a small ocean towage and offshore support business operating in the Middle East.

PB Towage Middle East provides offshore anchor handling and barge support services to the oil and gas industry and its contractors, as well as ocean towage and coastal bulk transportation of rock and aggregate for marine construction projects.

The business currently operates eight tugs/workboats and two barges in the Arabian Gulf.

PB Towage Background

Pacific Basin entered the towage sector in 2007. We grew PB Towage into a leading Australasian based towage contractor with a large fleet of modern tugs, workboats and barges operating in the Oceania, SE Asia and Middle East regions, offering a range of marine logistics and towage services centred on key growth markets.

We sold our Australasia-based harbour towage business in December 2014, and our remaining non-core offshore towage business operates in the Middle East under our PB Towage Middle East brand.
