Crowley to add sailings from North Atlantic to Puerto Rico

Crowley to add sailings from North Atlantic to Puerto Rico
Crowley Maritime Corp.’s liner services group has announced it will add sailings between Pennsauken, N., and San Juan, Puerto Rico, this summer, bringing additional services to the US NorthEast.

“With our accelerated sailing schedule, we have determined that we can add a sailing each month between Pennsauken and San Juan,” said John Hourihan, Crowley senior vice president and general manager, Puerto Rico services.

“We’ve been working diligently since last December to add capacity and tweak our vessel rotations and operations to accommodate as much cargo as possible. This enhancement will surely benefit our customers in the Northeast who have been adjusting to capacity issues caused by the departure of Horizon Lines from the market,” he said. 

The 580-series, triple-deck ro-ro barge capable of carrying 345 loads will alternate between the South Atlantic and North Atlantic services, and generate one southbound and one northbound sailing each month between Pennsauken and San Juan. Even with this change, all Crowley vessels operating on an accelerated schedule will be able to continue to provide four sailings per week between Jacksonville and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
