(HOUSTON) — Crowley Maritime Corp. will begin offering weekly, fixed-day, less-than-container-load (LCL) shipping services from Houston to 33 port destinations throughout the Caribbean Basin on July 1. The new logistics service will be the only one of its kind available from the Houston gateway.
This new offering is designed to further enhance supply chain options for those shipping directly into the Caribbean Basin from the West and Gulf Coasts of the U.S.
“Customers will be able to drop their cargo in Houston, and with our weekly, fixed-day service, have their cargo landed virtually anywhere within the eastern and western Caribbean, and Central America,” said Mike Griglione, Crowley’s general manager of logistics in Houston.
In addition to LCL transportation, Crowley also offers custom packing options, cargo consolidation and deconsolidation, warehousing, distribution, cross-docking, freight forwarding, import/export documentation, last-mile delivery, cargo insurance and customs brokerage services for cargo of all types and sizes.
LCL cargo shipments from Houston should be booked by calling 1-800-CROWLEY, and the cargo should be consigned to Crowley Logistics, Inc. c/o Customer Name, Destination Country; 15894 Diplomatic Plaza Dr., Houston, Texas 77032. Weekly cargo cutoff is noon every Thursday to ensure prompt departure and delivery to destination.
