Blue Water Shipping Company was founded in 1979 by Don Bass. At a time when most Steamship Agencies were preoccupied with liner trade, Blue Water was established with a clear purpose to serve and embrace the bulk tramp industry.
The company quickly grew into one of the leading Steamship Agencies on the Mississippi River. In 1993 Blue Water opened offices in Texas and the Pacific Northwest to better accommodate their customers' needs. Unmatched dedication and hard work from it's employees has solidified Blue Water's position as a small company that provides "big time" service.
