Crowley brings the power

Crowley Maritime's liner and logistics teams have provided supply chain management services for the first of several expected shipments to help restore power in Vieques, an island located off the coast of Puerto Rico.

To assist with the relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, Crowley provided ocean transport, trucking, delivery coordination, port services and freight forwarding of breakbulk supplies and utility-related equipment from San Juan to the island.

Crowley's Puerto Rico-based logistics group managed the delivery of power poles, cables, platforms and utility reconstruction equipment and vehicles.

The cargo was received at Crowley's San Juan warehouse and was loaded onto a flat-deck barge for onward transportation to Mosquito Pier.

Partnering with Vieques officials, Crowley provided stevedoring personnel and prepared the pier location to receive the vessel for cargo offloading.
