New Caucedo Port Call Increases Flexibility of Crowley Supply Chain Services

[ March 19, 2020   //   ]

Crowley Logistics has initiated weekly vessel and logistics services at the Port of Caucedo., Dominican Republic.
The new port call, which began in February, complements Crowley’s existing services at the Dominican Republic ports of Rio Haina and Puerto Plata, and seamlessly links shippers, manufacturers and consumers in the U.S. mainland, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
By adding Caucedo to the company’s full-scale supply chain management services in the Dominican Republic, customers will benefit from the newest and most modern, multimodal Caucedo logistics center – the first with a private, cargo-only port at the epicenter of the Americas Region.
“Caucedo is a very convenient and efficient option for importers and exporters who are looking for speed to market and cost-effective operations,” said Nelly Yunta, vice president of Crowley’s Dominican Republic services.
“We’re going to be able to leverage the benefits of our Caucedo operation, including the Free Trade Zone there, to help customers ensure their supply chains are operating most efficiently and cost effectively,” she added. “Combined with our existing service in the Dominican Republic, Crowley can connect shippers with quality logistics services and fast transit times reaching Puerto Rico, the U.S. mainland and other Caribbean islands.”
