"Crowley has served the shipping and logistics needs of Central America and the Caribbean for more than half a decade," said John Hourihan, senior vice president and general manager, Latin America liner services. "And we are always looking to enhance our service line."

 

"We are delighted to be expanding our relationship with Crowley, whose extensive track record in providing transportation and logistics services throughout Central America and the Caribbean is well known," stated Tampa port director Richard Wainio. "This service will provide exporters and importers of construction equipment, vehicles, break bulk and project cargoes with a more competitive option for trade between Central Florida and Latin America via the Port of Tampa."
