Expeditionary and Disaster Relief Logistics

Rapid Response to the World’s Toughest Logistics Challenges

Your greatest allies when the unexpected occurs are the ones who have been there before, done it before, and most importantly, succeeded before. We’re those people.

We’re your one source and one point of accountability.

Crowley people provide you with the logistical advantage before you even know the challenges you face. More than having at-the-ready, relief and response assets in place to help, we provide you with a total supply chain solution to scale to your needs—from ocean and overland logistics to air freight and warehousing. Plus we provide you with the power of working with people who have moved major military and historic humanitarian cargos everywhere in the world.

We know the world of hard cargoes and tough challenges. 

What’s the scenario? If the task at hand is chemical weapons handling and disposal, post disaster humanitarian assistance or operations of military or commercial nature, we can pull together a high-performing, cross-functional team for the job. Rely on our commercial operations and government experience to handle your planned or contingency operations, logistics planning and feasibility analysis—all with one call.

COVID-19 PPE Solutions

Whether you’re going back to school or back to work, Crowley delivers. We’ve been a consistent, responsive partner of the United States government for more than 100 years and stand ready to support your COVID-19 PPE response requirements. Our solid business performance and keen understanding of quality PPE demands, combined with our ability to procure the type and quantity of equipment required, while reliably delivering the product, make us the trusted source for local, state and federal government agencies.


Navigating the Ebola Crisis

During the peak of the Ebola crisis in West Africa, Crowley was called into action, supplying on-site logistics support and shipping services in support of the U.S. military’s Operation United Assistance in Liberia. Crowley offered the U.S. Government’s Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) a West Africa network solution with end to end, on the ground and over the sea, logistics support for aid and supplies. The response was immediate, secure and well-managed from start to finish.


Haiti Earthquake Relief

In the aftermath of the massive Haitian earthquake in January 2010, clearing debris out of the devastated Port-au-Prince Harbor was just the beginning. There were still millions of people living without food, water or shelter. The need for relief supplies wasn’t something that could be measured in days — each hour the situation was becoming more desperate. We instantly recognized the vital role we could play here and what needed to be done to help alleviate the suffering.


FEMA Hurricane Response

U.S. federal authorities called Hurricane Maria the most logistically challenging relief effort the United States had ever managed, and FEMA immediately turned to Crowley to help. When disasters like hurricanes strike, rapid response is essential to get food, water, generators and other supplies into the hands of people in need. Our cross-functional teams work together to plan and implement reliable, effective solutions for providing rapid response for government, military and commercial customers post-storm.


We’re indispensable during the unimaginable.

We’re among the few who have stood in your shoes. We can help you formulate the strategy and execution for missions that are hard to get your head around, let alone get started on. We’ll help you save time and avoid mistakes on: base construction and operations, HAZMAT removal and disposal, port opening and operations, salvage engineering and technical response, inland transportation and warehousing, or arranging customs clearance, cross border clearance and transportation.

The big stuff, the heavy stuff, the hard stuff that takes your breath away. Those are the types of logistics challenges our people live and breathe for.
