The addition brings the company's total fleet to more than 46,000 units. The latest acquisition represents growth of nearly 4 percent in Crowley's fleet of 45-foot-long, 102-inch-wide containers, and nearly 5 percent of its 40-foot high-cube container fleet. Included in the acquisition are 500 new 45-footers, half of them 102 inches wide and half 96 inches wide. Some of the 40-footers are already in service, while the 45-foot dry boxes are slated for construction by the end of April. Upon receipt, they will be dispersed throughout Crowley's liner services areas based on customer needs, the company said.
