Crowley Equipment Update 2015

2015-05-08

We recognize that equipment shortages have resulted from the recent extraordinary demands in the marketplace. You should know that Crowley continues to add critical resources and make process changes to meet this demand. Over the past several weeks our overall equipment stocks have increased to include equipment that directly benefits our apparel and perishable shippers, and we have made changes that are improving the efficiency of our operations. These actions are consistent with our goal of returning service to the levels that you expect, and we are starting to make a difference.

The table below provides an update on the equipment we have received to date, as well as what is expected to come online in the coming months:
