CTLC's Beginning

In the fall of 1995, CGB installed and began operations of our first Mid-Stream anchorage. Located at Laplace, LA, this first mid-stream facility changed the face of CGB’s terminal business. Always a major player in the Inland Terminal and Transportation industry, the installation of the mid-stream facility on the lower Mississippi River became a ‘Hub’ for CGB’s non-grain activity.

The subsequent installation of two adjacent anchorages gave CGB the flexibility to discharge import tonnage to inland barges from multiple ocean-going vessels. To better capitalize on the inland terminal business and our new mid-stream anchorage opportunities, CGB formed Consolidated Terminals and Logistics Company (CTLC) in the summer of 1996.

Initially, CTLC would arrange for and load empty northbound barges and then work with these same import customers to perform product unloading and delivery services, often to our own Inland Terminals. Service offerings grew to include all aspects of Logistical services including barge and rail capabilities, trucking, and storage. CTLC’s handle of import tonnage has grown to more than 30 products including Fertilizer, Semi-Finished Steel, Minerals, and Alloys, among others. At present, CTLC is known industry-wide for our diverse variety of services offered and exceptional customer service.

CGB's Beginning

Bob Frane and Claude Crowley founded Consolidated Grain and Barge Company on December 15, 1969. The initial operation was conducted from a small office at the Merchants Exchange Building in downtown St. Louis, Missouri. From its humble beginnings, CGB Enterprises, Inc. (CGB) now has over 1,000 employees at multiple locations throughout the United States.
