About Us

Crowley is an active participant and supporter of the AWO’s Responsible Carrier Program, which integrates safety, environment and quality assurance management

Crowley companies are committed to full implementation of an environmental, safety and quality assurance management system which includes ISO/ISM and also the American Waterways Operators (AWO) Responsible Carrier Program (RCP). The requirements of the AWOs program have been combined with the elements of the ISO/ISM requirements for tug and barge operations. Comprehensive operating policies and procedures are established to protect the safety of employees and protect the environment while providing marine transportation for our customers.
The AWO is the largest trade association for the U.S. tug and barge industry. The Responsible Carrier Program is an established code of practice for association membership, which was unanimously approved in 1994 by the AWO Board of Directors.
