To better serve customers shipping in the Caribbean Basin and beyond, Crowley Maritime Corp.’s liner services group announced today that it has launched a new feeder shipping service calling upon San Juan, Puerto Rico; Rio Haina Dominican Republic; and St. Croix and St. Thomas in the U.S Virgin Islands (USVI).
This fast and reliable sailing complements the company’s existing cargo transportation services connecting Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and the USVI with the surrounding Caribbean (including the Leeward, British Virgin and Windward Islands), Central America and the U.S Mainland.
Customers can ship cargo in all types of equipment, including 20 and 40 foot refrigerated reefer and dry containers, 45 foot by 102 inch dry containers and flat racks. Supporting the ocean freight services are employees at the company’s San Juan, Rio Haina or USVI facilities, who can streamline the handling and delivery of goods to their final destinations using a full portfolio of supply chain services, such as warehousing, Customs clearance and trucking.
“We are proud to offer customers yet another innovative service connecting key trading markets throughout the Caribbean Basin” said Steve Collar, senior vice president and general manager, Crowley international services. “The addition of this service helps us to remain focused on providing customers long term competitive and reliable supply chain solutions by leveraging our expanded capabilities. It’s yet another way we’re strengthening our reputation as a market leader in the Caribbean”.
The new service uses the following sailing schedule:
Sunday Rio Haina, DR
Tuesday San Juan, PR
Thursday San Juan, PR
Friday St Thomas, USVI
Friday St Croix, USVI
This fast, reliable schedule also provides customers shipping time sensitive cargo advantage of end of week departures from the USVI and early week arrivals in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. Customers who want to learn more about this new weekly sailing should contact Crowley’s customer care team by calling 1-800-CROWLEY, and selecting option two.
