Crowley to Launch Third Sailing in U.S. Gulf

Wednesday, May 09, 2007
Crowley Maritime Corporation announced that its liner services unit will add a third, weekly, fixed-day sailing effective May 18 between Gulfport, Miss. and the Central America northern zone countries of Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and El Salvador. Crowley had been serving the trade in the Gulf with vessels leaving Gulfport on Tuesdays and Saturdays, but will now sail on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. With this move, the Hansaland will join the Crowley Sun and the Ro/Ro Gothica to provide the third sailing. Ships in the northern zone service call in Santo Tomas, Guatemala and Puerto Cortes, Honduras. Overland service is provided to Nicaragua and El Salvador.

Like Crowley's other RoRo vessels in its Central America trade, the Hansaland can accommodate Crowley's full complement of equipment, including popular 45-ft. (102 in. wide) trailers, 20- and 40-ft. garment-on-hangar containers, and 20-ft. standard and 40-ft. high-cube refrigerated containers. The Hansaland is a 180 TEU ship with car decking for 30 regular automobiles. This ship is outfitted with plugs for 30 refrigerated containers and can accommodate an additional 30 with a power pack.
