Improved Velocity and Supply Chain Services for Jamaica

2018-09-24

Crowley Announces New Sailing Schedule  

and Supply Chain Enhancements for Jamaica Customers  

 

To strengthen our supply chain services in Jamaica and better align to the needs of the market, we will begin serving Kingston from the Port of Miami on Oct. 26. Ships in the service will depart weekly on Friday evenings and arrive in Kingston Sunday nights with cargo available Monday mornings.  

The new departure and arrival dates and times are consistent with our goal to improve the velocity and reliability of your supply chain. Our Jamaica service enhancements also align nicely with our global and intra-regional logistics services already being used today by a growing number of our Jamaica customers.  Customers can gain additional synergies via our enhanced local warehousing and distribution services.   

We are pleased to bring these improvements to the market and look forward to serving you.
