When it comes to hiring deckhands, Terral River Service seeks out the best of the best – those who are not only willing to work hard, but those who seek a career and want to be a part of a company with a bond like family.
President and CEO Tom Gattle said deckhands play a key role in running a successful and safe river operation.
Becoming a captain at Terral River Service isn’t something that happens overnight; Hours, days and months of training are required to earn the title. 18 months as a deckhand, working under a master captain for 240 days onboard a vessel, evaluations from designated examiners – the list goes on.
Dedicated to making sure their clients receive their various cargo and materials, Terral River Service is constantly seeking out ways to grow their business and build long-term relationships with their clients. This involves making sure operations are running smoothly, that all assets are being utilized appropriately and that partnerships and relationships are being nurtured.
There are several unavoidable barriers that can make delivering cargo on the river a challenge and, early last month, severe weather conditions caused several traffic points on the River to close. However, Terral River Service was successful in standing by their service motto of operating “24 hours, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.”
As excessive amounts of rain have poured across the United States, companies operating on the Red River are anticipating impending lock closings and other restrictions on their ability to operate.
Johnny Martin, COO at Terral River Service, along with Vice President of Transportation Gabe Gattle described the current situation as “more serious” than normal high water events, 2001 being the last year these types of water levels were seen.
For Kim King, Terral River Service is far more than a place of employment; it’s a place of community.
34 years ago, King began her first day of work as a receptionist for Great River Grain. In 1992, that company sold their grain elevators and merged what remained into what is now known as Terral River Service.
