March 10 - Effective March 17, Crowley Maritime Corporation's liner services group will launch a new ro-ro liner cargo service between Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; San Juan, Puerto Rico; and St. Thomas, USVI.
The fixed weekly schedule will benefit customers shipping cargo between the islands, as well as shippers sending cargo to the Caribbean from Crowley's Pennsauken and Jacksonville terminals.
Crowley's Tony Otero, vice president, Dominican Republic/Haiti and Cuba liner services said: "Crowley has been serving these markets for many years and is committed to continually providing the best solutions for the region's transportation needs. The Caribbean market continues to be an integral part of growing our company."
"This innovative service provides full connectivity between the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico as well as a wide variety of locations up the U.S. East Coast and into the rest of the Caribbean," said Crowley's Matt Jackson, vice president, Caribbean services. "Additionally, as a ro-ro service, we will be able to handle project cargo, including heavy and oversized shipments, in addition to our standard and refrigerated container shipments."
