Crowley to Add RoRo to Central America Liner Services

Wednesday, February 21, 2007
To better serve shippers needing more vessel space and unsurpassed schedule integrity, Crowley Maritime Corporation's Latin America liner services unit will add a new larger, faster Ro/Ro ship to its Central America northern zone service effective Jan. 26. The Stena Shipper, a 19-knot ship with 150 FEU trailer spaces, will replace the M/V Tolosa, which can carry about 105 FEU trailers at 17 knots. She will initially be deployed in Crowley's U.S. East Coast - Central America northern zone service, which features four southbound sailings a week linking Port Everglades, Fla., with Santo Tomas, Guatemala and Puerto Cortes, Honduras. San Salvador, El Salvador and Managua, Nicaragua are served overland via Santo Tomas and Puerto Cortes respectively. Sailings from Port Everglades occur Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
