(MIAMI; May 17, 2012) – Crowley Maritime Corporation’s logistics group announced today that it is expanding its Caribbean services beginning May 31 to include consolidated ocean and air cargo lifts to St. Kitts and Nevis from several points within the U.S. including Crowley’s Caribbean gateway, its Miami distribution center. These new offerings will further enhance supply chain options for those shipping directly into the Leeward Islands and will complement Crowley’s existing full-container-load (FCL) ocean services from the U.S. and its shipping and logistics services from Puerto Rico.
Hobson Enterprises, Crowley’s local St. Kitts/Nevis representative for FCL liner shipments, will now also serve as the company’s logistics agent, providing customers with a single point of contact for Crowley’s FCL, less-than-container-load (LCL) and air cargo services from the U.S. They will also be able to assist customers with other value added services such as warehousing, cargo consolidation, distribution and more.
“The inclusion of services to St. Kitts and Nevis offers further expansion of Crowley’s footprint in the Caribbean,” said Carlos Rice, vice president, logistics. “While individually these Caribbean islands may represent small markets, together they create a sizable territory for Crowley with unlimited growth potential.”
Customers wishing to utilize logistics or cargo shipping services to either St. Kitts or Nevis should contact Ana Rocas, director, logistics operations; Neysa Cambo, manager, logistics; Mariela Menendez, supervisor, freight services or Jesus Condomina, director, sales and marketing by calling 305-463-4800. For full container load services including dry, refrigerated, autos, and project cargo please contact 1-800-CROWLEY or Tony Gucciardi, Director of Caribbean sales at 908-400-0454.
