For the second consecutive year, CrowleyFresh, Miami’s newest cold-chain warehouse and logistics service, jointly offered by Crowley Maritime Corporation and subsidiary Customized Brokers, showed a little love to customer Sunshine Bouquet Company, a flower supplier based in Miami, by storing 1,027 pallets of fresh Colombian and Ecuadorian roses in advance of Valentine’s Day. The colorful, fragrant and perishable cargo was handled in CrowleyFresh’s 19,000 square-foot cold storage facility and the flowers were released to the U.S. market just in time for this year’s holiday.

CrowleyFresh is a partnership between Crowley and Customized Brokers that bundles individual cold-chain storage and logistics offerings into one comprehensive solution. The cold storage facility features multiple humidity and temperature-controlled coolers and is open 24/7 to accommodate perishables being imported and exported to/from Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, South America, Asia and the Far East and South Florida. The state-of-the-art facility is ideal for perishable storage or may be used as an in-transit consolidation/deconsolidation point. With 400,000 total cubic feet of refrigerated space, the facility offers additional storage space for dry, non-perishable cargo.

“The team did an excellent job once again in delivering these perishables to market in time for Valentine’s Day,” said CrowleyFresh’s Eduardo Campos, director. “When you’re shipping temperature-sensitive goods, every minute counts. Shippers of perishables need a reliable and committed cold-chain logistics partner who has industry-leading specialized equipment and experience. We love that we can offer this and more, including a diverse suite of additional logistics capabilities, such as Customs brokerage, air freight and trucking services, any day of the year, but especially on Valentine’s Day.”

The team is already preparing for the next impressive flower influx, which will bring in more than 125,000 boxes of roses and carnations for Mother's Day. Scheduled to come in around mid-April, these floral products will be stored and distributed in advance of the May holiday.
