Crowley Earns Environmental Awards

Tuesday, December 16, 2008

Crowley Maritime Corporation was recently honored at a Chamber Shipping of America awards ceremony with Environmental Achievement Awards for 2008.

The awards recognized the environmental excellence of 57 Crowley owned or managed vessels based on having operated at least two years without any environmental incidents. The vessels operated a combined total of 382 years of service without incident. Three vessels - tugboats Point Barrow and Point Thompson, along with the tanker Blue Ridge - have each operated 11 years without an incident.

"These awards celebrate the dedication to environmental excellence of our seafarers and the company personnel shore-side who operate our vessels to the highest standards," said Joseph J. Cox, president and CEO of CSA. "In today's world, it seems our industry only gets front-page news when spills or other environmental problems occur.  It is encouraging to see how many vessels go for years achieving environmental excellence.  It should be clear to the American public that we in the maritime industry take our stewardship of the marine environment very seriously."

Crowley is among the 51 companies, operating a total of 868 vessels that were recognized for their environmental excellence. All the vessels combined have operated a total of 5,951 years without incident.

"This recognition is a testament to the rigorous work of our crews who ensure our vessels operate in an environmentally responsible manner," said Captain Victor Goldberg, Crowley's vice president of marine operations for petroleum services. "More than 50 Crowley vessels were recognized with a total of 382 years of service without incident. Those records speak volumes to the dedication of our crew in ensuring our waterways continue to be healthy."

Jacksonville-based Crowley Holdings Inc., a newly formed holding company of the 116-year-old Crowley Maritime Corporation, is a privately held family and employee-owned company that provides diversified transportation and logistics services in domestic and international markets by means of six operating lines of business: Puerto Rico/Caribbean Liner Services, Latin America Liner Services, Logistics Services, Petroleum Services, Marine Services and Technical Services.
