“We at Crowley are uniquely positioned to add value to our customers’ supply chains by both increasing the velocity of those supply chains with our integrated services, and in doing so, reducing their total landed cost,” said Mark Kearns, director, logistics operations. “This forum in Jamaica and other discussions like it, with both current and potential customers, is all about that proven value proposition.”
