The location of AGRIServices of Brunswick was chosen because of its access to all modes of transportation. Using the Norfolk Southern rail, US-24 highway and our inland waterway system, we provide our wholesale and retail customers the ability to purchase agricultural inputs and sell grain competitively.
Our inland waterway system remains the most cost effective mode of transportation for high bulk, low value products and has been the backbone of our transportation system continuously since 1978.
In 2007 when political factions forced our existing Missouri River transportation suppliers out of the region, ASB began leasing a towboat to ensure the continuation of this vital marine highway. In 2010 one of our major stakeholders purchased the M/V Mary Lynn and formed MO River Towing Inc. The M/V Mary Lynn is a 3800 horse shallow draft boat ideal for navigation on the Missouri River. The M/V Mary Lynn continues to ensure our ability to move fertilizer into the region and grain out for international export.
Captain Steve Engemann operates the M/V Mary Lynn with Hermann Sand and Gravel. Please contact Captain Engemann for all of your Missouri River transportation needs. (573) 486-2913
Barge transportation is often the most cost effective while at the same time maintaining a much smaller carbon foot print. Barge Transportation produces less carbon dioxide while moving cargo. CO2 produced per ton of cargo moved on inland barges have a significant advantage over other forms of transportation.
