Keystone Shipping Monitors Cargo Ships 24/7 While at Port in Lay-Up
David Deltano has been managing fleets of cargo ships for over a decade – in salt and fresh water. Based in Duluth, Minn., as a fleet manager for Keystone Shipping, Deltano is responsible for vessels while they are en route and at port.
