FUEL – 49 CFR 176.905 regulation of delivering vehicles and NITs


Safety is Crowley’s No. 1 core value, and as such we require your assistance to ensure continued safe operations. We have seen a rise in vehicle and NIT shipments being delivered to our port facilities for vessel loading with more than a ¼ tank of gasoline. Regulation 49 CFR 176.905 for shipping vehicles and NIT cargo requires that these cargoes ship with no more than ¼ tank of fuel. If you are shipping this type of cargo, we ask that you do so in compliance with this regulation.

Beginning Dec. 24, 2015, shippers with vehicles and NIT cargo containing more than ¼ tank of gas will be charged $75 for fuel removal.

Thank you for your assistance with this important safety matter. If you have any questions, please contact your sales representative or the Customer Care Department at 1-800-276-9539.

As always, we appreciate your business and continued support.
