Crowley nearly doubles size of Puerto Rico Distribution Center to better serve customers shipping to and from U.S. Mainland and Caribbean

The expansion brings Crowley’s total warehouse space on Puerto Rico to 119,800 square feet to serve as a centralized routing center for cargo moving between the U.S. and Puerto Rico, Caribbean, Central America and beyond. Customers can now count on us for all their shipping and logistics needs in the region.
Guaynabo, Puerto Rico.

Crowley Maritime Corporation’s Caribbean logistics unit acquired a second warehouse adjacent to the company’s existing 70,000 square-foot distribution center in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico to bring Crowley’s total warehouse space on the island to 119,800 square feet.

In addition to improving Crowley’s warehousing capabilities, the expansion also enhances the company’s ability to provide a wider suite of total shipping and logistics services to customers on the island and also to those who ship between Puerto Rico, the U.S. mainland and the Eastern and Western Caribbean. Crowley currently offers liner shipping to Puerto Rico from Jacksonville, Fla., Pennsauken, N.J., and more than 20 Caribbean islands – making the company one of the only providers to offer such comprehensive connections and services.

Crowley is also investing in its fleet of equipment and in an online cargo management system that will provide customers in Puerto Rico with complete supply chain visibility. The new web-based management system will provide customers with real-time tracking and receiving information, product allocations, order processing, inventory control and delivery confirmations.
