the castleman maritime team

Greg Castleman has assembled a team of seasoned industry professionals — a team that can meet the ongoing needs of the present and more importantly, the upcoming challenges of the future.

With the opening of the new Panama Canal locks in 2014, the NEW, 1,200 foot Panamax Ships will carry 13,000 TEUs vs. the former 965 foot Panamax Ships ability to carry only 5,000 TEUs. All the ports of North & South America that will be visited by these larger ships will need the docking ability offered by Escort Tractor Tugs of the type developed by the Castleman Team.
