New Caucedo Port Call in Dominican Republic Increases Flexibility of Crowley Supply Chain Services

Crowley Logistics has added flexibility and greater convenience for customers utilizing its industry-leading supply chain solutions in the Dominican Republic by initiating weekly vessel and logistics services at the Port of Caucedo.

The new port call, which began in February, complements Crowley’s existing services at the Dominican Republic ports of Rio Haina and Puerto Plata, and seamlessly links shippers, manufacturers and consumers in the U.S. mainland, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

By adding Caucedo to the company’s full-scale supply chain management services in the Dominican Republic, customers will benefit from the newest and most modern, multimodal Caucedo logistics center – the first with a private, cargo-only port at the epicenter of the Americas Region.

“Caucedo is a very convenient and efficient option for importers and exporters who are looking for speed to market and cost-effective operations,” said Nelly Yunta, vice president of Crowley’s Dominican Republic services.

“We’re going to be able to leverage the benefits of our Caucedo operation, including the Free Trade Zone there, to help customers ensure their supply chains are operating most efficiently and cost effectively,” she added. “Combined with our existing service in the Dominican Republic, Crowley can connect shippers with quality logistics services and fast transit times reaching Puerto Rico, the U.S. mainland and other Caribbean islands.”

“We are proud to continue supporting the economy and development of the Dominican Republic with this new service and our industry-leading logistics solutions that serve diverse industries,” said general manager Pablo Garrido, based in the Dominican Republic. Crowley’s solutions include dependable ocean transportation as well as customs brokerage, inland transportation, warehousing and distribution, and full-scale supply chain management.

With multiple weekly sailings and connections throughout the Caribbean Basin, Crowley provides customers with singular accountability, which leads to seamless supply chain services, even when connecting smaller islands via its network of feeder vessels. Additionally, Crowley uses top-of-the-line equipment, including the market’s newest refrigerated “reefer” containers that are so important to customers in the Caribbean markets.

“DP World is happy that a carrier with such long-standing tradition like Crowley will come to our port. We are committed to working together to provide excellent and expedited services to customers,” said Ramon Badia, commercial director, DP World Caucedo. “The Caucedo service will provide an efficient option for imports and exports.”
