Jim Wood

Jim Wood has been working at Terral RiverService Inc. for 10 years, and is the Captain of the M.V. Marguerite L. Terral.

“I wanted to work there for the family atmosphere and the great equipment – the boats are well kept,” Jim said.

Jim has been on the M.V. Marguerite L. Terral for 8 years and has worked on many rivers, including the Mississippi, Ohio, Alabama, Atchafalaya, Tennessee, Cumberland and Red Rivers. Jim enjoys working on the Lower Mississippi, because it’s spacious.

As the Captain of the M.V. Marguerite L. Terral, Jim says his priorities are being sure product is moved quickly and safely, keeping the boat within budget, and to maintain a good crew.

Jim is stationed out of Terral’s Lettsworth office and spoke highly of their team.

“I appreciate the Lettsworth Office personnel,” Jim said. “When I walk in, its like family, and I love them like they’re family.”

Thank you Captain Jim Wood, for your dedication to #TeamTerral. We appreciate you!
