As part of their 20th anniversary celebration, Argosy is sponsoring various professional events, and contributing toward initiatives in education within the maritime industry. Argosy appreciates the importance of investing in young professionals, and they remain committed to developing a platform for the future of the industry.

Argosy’s commitment to trust and performance in transit is evidenced by its 20-year history. Argosy can trace its roots back to 1996 when Argosy Shipping was established by Rider Griswold, moving their first 76-ton shipment from Antwerp to Houston.  At the time, the west-gulf had urgent need for a brokerage firm that could provide multi-purpose ships to project-cargo owners, and to the freight forwarding community. Argosy Shipping spearheaded the way, enabling freight forwarders to charter ships by offering industry leading contractual, and operational chartering services.

During the following 20 years, Argosy evolved from a shipping brokerage firm, to becoming a diversified maritime transportation and logistics company. Now operating three main divisions: barging, shipping, and technical services, Argosy ensures that their clients receive industry leading, customized, and competitive solutions, both domestically and internationally.
