Crowley Maritime Corp. has expanded its Caribbean ocean services. The expansion is a result of Crowley's recent acquisition of Puerto Rico Freight Systems (PRFS), a logistics company specializing in freight consolidation and less-than-containerload (LCL) transportation throughout the Caribbean. Now operating as a part of Crowley Caribbean Logistics, the service provides shipments from Europe, Central and South America, Asia, and the United States to Puerto Rico and 19 other destinations throughout the Caribbean Basin. Among its value-added services, the company provides pick-up service throughout Puerto Rico for LCL and full container load (FCL) shipments and one-carrier responsibility for all Caribbean destinations.
Other PRFS services include risk insurance, documentation, bills of lading to the Caribbean from international origins, hazardous material (HAZMAT) handling and shipping, U.S. Customs bonded cartman's licensing, container freight station services, and more. The company also operates a protected U.S. Customs bonded container station warehouse comprised of 51,000 square feet in the San Juan Free Trade Zone. The facility is designed to handle oversized cargo, and employees use a triple-check system to ensure shipment accuracy.
