9 Smart Terminal Upgrades that Give Crowley’s Shipping Operations an Edge in Puerto Rico

It’s no secret that Crowley is making infrastructure improvements to its Isla Grande Terminal as part of a $550 million investment in the company’s Puerto Rico services. Of importance are three ship-to-shore container cranes, which will be used to load and unload containerized cargo carried aboard Crowley’s two new, Commitment Class combination container/Roll-On Roll-Off (ConRo) ships, powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG). The 65-meters tall Liebherr container cranes are some of the most technically advanced, ship-to-shore gantries in operation nearly anywhere today. 

What still may be a secret to you, however, is how Crowley can offer maximum container loading and unloading efficiency, while turning cargo for customers faster than other carriers. The reason is due in large part to these nine smart innovations Crowley is incorporating in the terminal upgrades:

Crowley's Construction Management Team Drives Efficient, Quality Build-Out at Shipyard

A key to Crowley’s success currently building its Commitment Class ships powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG) is the company’s construction management team. Lead by manager Patrick Sperry, they are using the company’s deep well of expertise and experience delivering high performing ships, this time on Crowley’s own two combination container/Roll-On Roll-Off vessels being built at VT Halter Marine.

Crowley continues to make great progress in the transformational upgrades now underway at the company's Isla Grande Terminal in San Juan, Puerto Rico. In addition to achieving safety certifications from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the company is pleased to report that all three of the new gantry cranes, which have been designed to serve the company's liquefied natural gas (LNG)-powered ConRo ships, which are under construction, have passed their required endurance tests. As shown in the video clip above, endurance testing simulates 12 hours of continuous cargo-handling maneuvers to prove that the cranes' systems, technology and equipment are in safe and good working order before operations begin. 

Tom Crowley: Investments in New Ships, LNG and Refrigerated Units Buoy Trade in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean

Crowley’s Chairman and CEO Tom Crowley recently spoke about the company’s liner and logistics strategy and the $550 million investment Crowley is making in its Puerto Rico and Caribbean business at JAXPORT’s Logistics and Intermodal Conference, held in Jacksonville this past spring. In this video, listen to Crowley’s key remarks on these topics, as well as the company’s burgeoning liquefied natural gas (LNG) business that is now supplying industrial customers throughout the Caribbean Basin with an efficient, reliable and affordable fuel source.

Two Large Cranes Successfully Relocated in Jax, Will Serve Crowley's New ConRo Ships

Over the weekend, the Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT) moved two large container cranes by barge from its Blount Island Marine Terminal on Jacksonville's Northside to Crowley's Talleyrand Marine Terminal near downtown. As shown in this Department of Transportation video, the cranes were safely towed along the the St.  Johns River and under the Dames Point Bridge during low tide.
