Crowley Maritime provide LCL (Less than Container Load) ocean & air cargo lifts plus customs brokerage to Cartagena, Colombia.

“Colombia is the first step in Crowley’s expansion of logistics services within South America,” said Carlos Rice, vice president, logistics."

Crowley Maritime Corporation’s logistics group has expanded its logistics services to include LCL ocean and air cargo lifts along with customs brokerage services to Cartagena, Colombia, from several points within the U.S., including the company’s Miami; San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Colon, Panama, distribution centers.

The company’s Houston-based, freight forwarding and export-packing subsidiary, Jarvis International Freight, will also service the Colombia trade lane from its Gulf Coast location. Cargo arriving in Cartagena can be trucked under Crowley’s coordination to Medellin, Cali and Bogota.

These new offerings will further enhance supply chain options for those shipping directly into the Eastern Caribbean from Colombia and will complement Crowley’s existing full-container-load (FCL) ocean services from the U.S. and its shipping and logistics services from Puerto Rico into the Caribbean and Central America regions.

Transtainer Ltda. has been enlisted as Crowley’s local Colombia representative in order to provide customers with a single point of contact for Crowley’s LCL and air cargo services to and from Colombia.
