Crowley's Bay-Area Tugs Relocate to Port of Oakland

Wednesday, June 14, 2006
To better serve its Oakland ship assist and escort customers Crowley Maritime Corporation is relocating its tugs to Berth 9 in the Port of Oakland effective Friday, June 16. The move, eight miles away from Crowley's previous terminal at 10th Avenue, will allow Crowley to provide faster service upon receiving a customer's ship assist request. Crowley tugs will be based closer to most customer operations and will be able to work with greater ease in the expanse of the Outer Harbor. Tugs will no longer need to sail through the Oakland Estuary to reach most vessels. Crowley tugs, which were once a fixture in San Francisco Bay from the early 1900s to 1996, returned home in 2004 to once again provide service to area customers. In the Bay Area, Crowley provides traditional ship assist services to carriers, typically container shipping companies, as they enter and leave the port and its surrounding areas.
