Chicagoland Marine Equipment
Kindra Lake Towing is dedicated to providing quality service.
Kindra Lake Towing was established in 1992 by John Kindra with the purchase of 3 tugs. Today the company has 4 tugs, 2 harbor boats and 4 deck barges. Our services include moving conventional river barges between South Chicago and the steel mills in northwest Indiana as well as barge towing and transportation throughout the Great Lakes. We own a Coast Guard approved fleeting area for tank barges and provide liquid cargo transfers between lake tank barges and river tank barges. We provide cargo handling services for special projects and mechanical repairs to boats and barges outside our own equipment.
John Kindra has over 35 years of experience in the marine transportation industry.
