Central Gulf Lines Moves Two Armored Brigades Across the Pacific
MOBILE, Ala. — Central Gulf Lines Inc. (CGL), a subsidiary of SEACOR Holdings Inc., announced in a Dec. 3 release that the M/V Green Cove recently completed a round-trip voyage to Busan, South Korea, under a time charter to the U.S. Navy’s Military Sealift Command. CGL supported the movement of military equipment for U.S. Army brigades.
Green Cove transported well in excess of 20,000 metric tons of military cargo, including more than 150 M1 Abrams tanks and nearly 300 Bradley Fighting Vehicles, utilizing the vessel’s full lift capacity. The high-profile loading and discharge operations were attended by senior Army leadership.
CGL President and U.S. Navy veteran Henry Nuzum praised the tight coordination between CGL and the military.
“We appreciate the hard work of the 833rd Transportation Battalion in Seattle, the 837th Transportation Battalion in Busan and the 834th Transportation Battalion in Oakland, loading and discharging the cargo. CGL delivered the equipment safely and ahead of schedule,” Nuzum said. “In 1950, CGL completed its first military contract, moving equipment for Military Sealift Command to Korea. After nearly seven decades of moving equipment for the U.S. armed forces, it is gratifying to deliver a fresh brigade to the site of our inaugural military move and bring another one home.”
