Ship Management


Crowley Government Services provides the following services both exclusively and as a bundled vessel management solution for our Government customers: 

  • Operational and technical support- Port engineers and/or port captains manage the maintenance and repair plans, provide shipyard supervision during periodic dry-dockings, ensure compliance with regulatory agencies, coordinate vetting inspections, and coordinate or perform internal/external audits. Vessel safety assessments are conducted and awareness training is provided as required.

  • Crewing support- The crewing department and labor relations groups are experienced with both domestic and international crewing requirements. Long-standing, positive working relationships with the major labor organizations allow Crowley to provide skilled crew for any vessel type as well as training programs for continuing education. Crew travel arrangements are made in-house by Crowley’s travel department.

  • Safety, Security, Quality, Environmental Assurance- Successful operations are built upon well documented Management Systems, with clear procedures and guidelines. Crowley has extensive experience in developing and implementing such systems. Crowley’s systems meet the requirements of ISO 9001 and 14001, ISM Code, and Responsible Carrier Program.

U.S. Government Agency Seized Vessels

Crowley provides custodial services for vessels seized by U.S. Government agencies and  contractors, including the Treasury Department, and U.S. Coast Guard. Upon seizure of the abandoned vessel Olympiakos in late 2009, Crowley provided 24 hour security, pollution control measures, insurance, and engineering services to ensure the safety and security of the vessel until final disposition.
