Buckley McAllister, the president of McAllister Towing, will talk about trends in the industry, the evolution of vessels and other technology and how the industry has adapted to changes in regulations and the environment. The towing company has been family owned for its entire 149 year history. Currently they operate 70 tugs in over a dozen ports from Portland, Maine to San Juan, Puerto Rico. Much of McAllister's work is right here in New York Harbor. Over the last century and a half, the McAllisters have seen many changes in the operations, laws and vessels that govern the shipping industry in New York Harbor.
