Crowley Debuts LCL Logistics Services to Colombia

The logistics group of Crowley Maritime Corp. has expanded its service to include less-than-containerload (LCL) ocean and air-cargo lifts, as well as customs brokerage services, to Cartagena, Colombia from key points within the U.S. and Latin America.

Origin locations include Crowley's distribution centers in Miami, Fla.; San Juan, Puerto Rico and Colon, Panama. Jarvis International Freight, Crowley's Houston-based freight-forwarding and export-packing subsidiary, will also service the Colombia trade lane from the Gulf Coast. Cargo arriving in Cartagena can be trucked under Crowley's control to Medellin, Cali and Bogota. Transtainer Ltda. will serve as Crowley's location representative in Colombia, providing a single point of contact for the company's LCL and air-cargo services to and from the country. According to Crowley, the new service will provide additional options for customers shipping directly into the eastern Caribbean from Colombia, and will complement the company's full-containerload ocean services from the U.S., as well as its shipping and logistics services from Puerto Rico in the Caribbean and Central America.
