Happy National Maritime Day!

Happy National Maritime Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IRPT would like to thank every port worker, every terminal worker, all of the Nation’s boat captains, their deck crews, our barge lines, and every American working in the Maritime industry. To each of you, YOU help power our Nation’s economy, YOU contribute to each of your communities overall economic health, and YOU help strengthen trade within the United States and around the world.

America’s supply chain depends on every maritime worker, from the top executives, to our office support team members to those working in the elements out on the docks and on our rivers. As each of you have been made aware recently,

you are essential!


Maritime Day is a time-honored tradition that recognizes one of our country’s most important industries. Each year, ceremonies and celebrations throughout the country recognize Maritime Day and the people our maritime nation depends on. - MARAD
