Government and Military


Proudly Serving our Nation with Safe, Innovative Solutions

Crowley provides marine solutions, energy and logistics solutions for U.S. Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security and other federal and state agencies. Our customers are served by industry specialists and military veterans who leverage the expertise, scale, and scope of our commercial business to solve government’s toughest challenges…

For over 100 years, we have provided transportation, logistics, and fuel services to U.S. government operations domestically and abroad in peace time and during nation-wide mobilization in times of conflict or natural disasters. Crowley’s humanitarian assistance and disaster relief response started as early as 1906 when the company mobilized assets to assist the evacuation of San Francisco during the great earthquake. Crowley provided logistics for the U.S. Air Force installation of distant early warning line (DEW line) radars in Alaska during the 1950s and logistics in the Caribbean and Central America during mobilizations over the past decades.

In recent decades, we’ve supported U.S. Navy salvage operations in the Pacific and provided humanitarian and disaster response around the globe for the Department of Defense by leveraging our technical capabilities and transportation network. For many years, our ship management group has managed, crewed and operated a wide variety of ships for government agencies, including the Military Sealift Command (MSC) and the U.S. Maritime Administration (MARAD).

Today we continue our proud tradition of serving U.S. Department of Defense, Homeland Security and other government agencies with a portfolio of commercial services adapted to meet their missions, including:
