Food & Agriculture

Our Customers include leading producers of phosphate fertilizers and crop nutrients, and companies moving a variety of food-grade products to warehouses and distribution centers across the United States. We support this essential work by managing critical links in our Customers’ food and agriculture supply chains—safely, reliably and responsibly. We provide integrated marine, truck and rail transportation services, facility management and handling of raw materials such as sulphur and ammonia for our agricultural customers. Additionally, as a premiere transload operator, we’re experts at moving dry bulk and liquid bulk products between railcars and trucks, for foods ranging from flour to corn syrup.

By bundling these and other services, we simplify the process for Customers and make it far more cost-effective than dealing with multiple service providers. We create additional value by designing, building and operating facilities and systems to solve Customers’ unique logistical challenges.

 

Sulphur Operations

As the operating partner in Gulf Sulphur Services Ltd., LLLP (GSS), we operate the largest sulphur marine transportation, terminaling and logistics system in the United States, which features molten sulphur terminals, sulphur forming (prilling) facilities, sulphur blocking (vatting), sulphur melting and inland sulphur barges. We also operate several offshore vessels, including one of the world’s largest liquid-sulphur vessels, The Sulphur Enterprise, which can transport approx. 1.6 million tons per year of sulphur across the Gulf of Mexico.

 

Transload Terminals

We operate more than 40 transload terminals across North America, including facilities owned by Savage as well as Customer- and third-party owned terminals. At these locations, we safely and efficiently handle the transfer of food-grade products and other critical materials between different modes of transportation. Foods that we regularly transload for Customers include sugar, flour, malt, beans, corn sweeteners and syrup, and more.

Recently, Savage managed the design and construction of the state-of-the-art Abundance and Harvest Articulated Tug and Barge (ATB), named one of WorkBoat’s 10 Significant Boats of 2017. A Savage subsidiary operates the ATB unit for Port Tampa Services, LLC, a subsidiary of The Mosaic Company. This new operation provides a critical link in our Customer’s agriculture supply chain, safely transporting raw materials used in the production of phosphate fertilizers across the Gulf of Mexico, from Louisiana to Tampa, Florida.

A Partner You Can Trust

Our team can handle your most difficult challenges, providing a complete solution that adds value. Part of the Savage culture is to deliver what we promise. That means worry-free reliability. We do what we say we will, safely, efficiently and consistently — without exceptions.
