To better serve customers shipping between the U.S. and Panama, Crowley Maritime Corp. ’s liner services group has enhanced its ocean container transportation services with a new, weekly sailing connecting Jacksonville and Port Everglades, Fla., more directly with Manzanillo, Panama. This sailing complements a new office in Panama, which combines Crowley’s ocean cargo and logistics personnel, to provide streamlined supply chain services.
Two Crowley 1,100-TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) container ships, the MV Toronto Trader and MV Weisshorn, now alternate carrying cargo southbound from Jacksonville on Thursday and Port Everglades on Friday before arriving in Kingston, Jamaica, on Sunday; Limon, Costa Rica, on Tuesday; and Manzanillo, Panama, on Thursday. The vessels quick turn and sail northbound from Manzanillo on Thursdays; arriving in Limon on Friday; Port Everglades on Tuesday and Jacksonville on Wednesday.
Once cargo arrives in Panama, employees at the company’s newly consolidated liner and logistics office at Manzanillo International Terminal (Building C, Office B-7, Second Floor, Navieras Area) can streamline the handling of goods in country and throughout the region. Customers may contact this office by calling 011-507-302-9100.
The new Panama office supplements and supports the company’s distribution center located at the Parque Industrial y Corredor Sur, Ave. Domingo Diaz (Via Tocumen), Edificio #5-6, Bodegas 1, 2, 3. Crowley’s logistics professionals work with customers to enhance supply chain efficiency with integrated logistics services, such as inventory management and tracking, pool point distribution, consolidation and deconsolidation, cross-docking and transportation services.
