U.S. Vessel Management


CGSM Fleet List (PDF)

Crowley brings a wealth of experience to the operation and management of container ships, tankers and U.S. Maritime Administration Ready Reserve Force ships, as well as specialty vessels such as state-of-the- art, deep-water derrick pipelay vessels, self-propelled jack-up barges and heavy-lift cargo vessels.

We provide a variety of ship management models – including operational, technical and administrative services – for both U.S. and foreign-flag customers, and have built a customer-oriented reputation by combining company-wide capabilities with custom service packages to care for each managed ship as if it were one of our own.

Currently, Crowley manages approximately 40 U.S. flag, international, and Jones Act vessels. We also bring unmatched technical expertise to each project, which aids in the customization of effective vessel management models that provide maximum benefit to all involved parties.
