New branding reflects Logistec's expanding reach

2018-03-14

McKeil Marine's Evans Spirit  won the International Bulk Journal's 2016 Ship of the Year Award during the IBJ's Salute to Excellence in the Maritime Bulk Industry gala awards ceremony in London, UK on November 21.
"It's a fantastic way to closeout our 60th anniversary year: having a vessel named after our founder, Evans McKeil, win this prestigious international award," said Steve Fletcher, President and CEO of McKeil Marine.
Acquired by McKeil in 2015, the Evans Spirit is a cargo ship with the shallow draught characters of a tug and barge; however, compared to a tug-and-barge unit, she can transport approximately 40 per cent more cargo about 50 per cent faster on a very similar amount of fuel.  She is in service throughout the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River.
Evans Spirit was shortlisted for 2016 Ship of the Year competing with three other vessels: CS Bright, Mitsui OSK Lines, Japan;  Damen Shipyards, Netherlands; and MN Baroque, Swiss Marine, Switzerland. The award is presented to the owner, operator or builder of an outstanding individual bulk ship. Judged on operational efficiency, design innovation, safety and environmental protection, the Evans Spirit was selected as winner. (Photo Paul Beesley).

Following a recent acquisition that markedly extends its terminal operations in the U.S. Gulf, Logistec Corporation has unveiled a new branding.

"To celebrate this evolution and to recognize Logistec's expanding reach, Logistec is excited to introduce a new branding that clearly reflects its sectors of expertise as denoted in the new coloured "O" - marine services and environmental services both linked by water," Logistec said. "This unique combination of services is brought to life by the dedication of the Paquin family, along with 2,300 people across North America, from the Arctic to the U.S. Gulf, and key industry partners, who together strive every day to go beyond for their customers.  The future is bright for the Logistec family."

As a result of the acquisition of Houston-based Gulf Stream Marine, Logistec's cargo-handling activities now encompass 58 terminals in 35 ports in eastern North America and the Gulf region.

"My father would be very proud of where we are today," said Madeleine Paquin, President and CEO since 1996.  Roger Paquin  founded the company in 1952 by concentrating on stevedoring and cargo-handling along the shores of the St. Lawrence River.
