Crowley Maritime Corp.’s liner and logistics group was recently presented with its eleventh-consecutive Logistics Excellence Award for export quality – an honor given in recognition of Crowley’s ongoing efforts to safely and efficiently transport Toyota vehicles to Puerto Rico from the U.S. East Coast.

Crowley’s Peter Noyer, vice president, national accounts and John Kelley, director, national accounts, accepted the award on Crowley’s behalf during Toyota’s annual logistics partners meeting in Newport Beach, Calif. Event attendees included professionals representing marine, rail and motor carriers.

As Toyota’s exclusive carrier, Crowley transported over 13,000 of the company’s vehicles to Puerto Rico in 2012. For more than 50 years Crowley has served the Caribbean Basin, providing diverse shipping and logistics services between the U.S. and more than 24 points throughout the region, including Puerto Rico.

Crowley's Puerto Rico vessels are designed with specialized automobile decking, which allows up to 240 vehicles per voyage to be driven on, stowed and transported in a protected space. A team of auto checkers and traffic specialists play a large role in ensuring that load lists are correct and documentation is complete prior to sailing. Additionally, the company has dedicated fenced, lighted and secured terminal space in Jacksonville for approximately 400 Toyota vehicles near the vessel loading ramp, minimizing the need for Toyota vehicles to be driven around and through the terminal.
