Crowley Responds to Earthquake in Haiti

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

In light of the earthquake in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Crowley Maritime Corporation's liner services group has temporarily suspended regularly scheduled cargo services to and from the country.  This temporary suspension comes as port infrastructure damages are being assessed.  The company is cooperating with and assisting U.S. government agencies including USAID, SDDC and other relief agencies with emergency shipments to the country.

Crowley stands ready to ship emergency supplies and needed cargo as soon as port conditions allow.  The company is evaluating how it can best deploy its wide variety of specialized marine assets to deliver humanitarian cargo and assistance to the disaster relief.

"We are deeply concerned for our colleagues as well as all Haitian citizens affected by this disaster," said Tucker Gilliam, general manager, Dominican Republic/Haiti services.  "We are closely monitoring the situation through our agent in Port-au-Prince and our Incident Management Team and are maintaining communications with both relief agencies and our customers ensuring that cargo moves are resumed as quickly as possible."

Those wishing to contribute humanitarian supplies to Haiti's relief effort should do so by contacting non-profit organizations such as Food for the Poor or Catholic Relief Services.
