Out To Lunch: Down The Mississippi To The Gulf Of Mexico
In 1814 it was the British who were "runnin' down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico." Today, ships of almost every nationality are steaming down the river to the Gulf. 54 of them belong to International Shipholding. Their fleet of cargo vessels ply international trade from their current headquarters in Mobile, Alabama but they're set to return soon to their original home in New Orleans.
Randy Bullard also spends a lot of his time on the river, but also in it and under it. Randy is the President of River Services Company. The company has offices in Harahan, Mississippi, Tennessee and Kentucky and a fleet of 10 ships that provide river services like underwater construction, welding, and salvage.
