Hartley Marine To Operate
Walker General Cargo
Terminal In Paducah, Ky.
Hartley Marine Corp. will lease and operate the Riverport General
Cargo Facility, according to a recent agreement between Hartley and the
Paducah-McCracken County Port
Authority. The facility is located at approximately Mile 1.3 on the Ten- nessee River at the junction of the
Ohio and Tennessee Rivers.
The terminal will operate under the name of Walker General Cargo
Terminal, stated Ken Wheeler, president of Hartley Marine. Walk- er is a part of Hartley, which is a division of Midland Affiliated Com- pany, one of the largest inland wa- terways transportation companies in the U.S. In addition to the termi- nal, Walker's Paducah operations include a boat yard, a midstream operation and R & W Marine.
The agreement is expected to of- fer a number of benefits to both parties. According to Wayne Meu- nier, port director, the Port Au- thority will have more time to devel- op the Port of Paducah. Mr. Meu- nier said he will actively solicit new business prospects for all existing port facilities and attempt to devel- op new industrial growth in the Port
Authority's Industrial Park.
Enthusiastic about the agree- ment, Mr. Wheeler pointed out that the terminal is particularly well-suited to handle specialty car- goes such as veneer logs and zircon sand. The facility is serviced by all transportation modes and has over 35,000 square feet of covered stor- age. Mr. Wheeler indicated that his company looks forward to oper- ating the Walker General Cargo
Terminal and has established a goal of maintaining the facility's excel- lent reputation.
