June 19 - Crowley Maritime is set to add liner sailings between Pennsauken, New Jersey and San Juan, Puerto Rico, this summer.
"With our accelerated sailing schedule, we have determined that we can add a sailing each month between Pennsauken and San Juan," said John Hourihan, Crowley senior vice president and general manager, Puerto Rico services.
"We've been working diligently since last December to add capacity and tweak our vessel rotations and operations to accommodate as much cargo as possible. This enhancement will surely benefit our customers in the Northeast who have been adjusting to capacity issues caused by the departure of Horizon Lines from the market."
The 580-series, triple-deck ro-ro barge capable will alternate between the South Atlantic and North Atlantic services, and generate one southbound and one northbound sailing each month between Pennsauken and San Juan. Even with this change, Crowley has reassured the market that all Crowley vessels operating on an accelerated schedule will be able to continue to provide four sailings per week between Jacksonville and San Juan.
