Crowley Logistics Office Now Neighbor to SoCal Ports

Crowley Maritime has completed the move of its Inglewood, California logistics office to a larger facility about 20 miles south near the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach in San Pedro. The new office is strategically located near the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, and will continue to provide ocean, airfreight and Customs brokerage services.

The relocation, according to Crowley, is part of a larger company expansion along the US West Coast to supply customers in the Far East and in Central and South America with the firm's logistics services. The move also supports Crowley's expanding trucking, intermodal and logistics capabilities on the West Coast.

"The relocation of this office was an ideal move for the company," Crowley's director of North America transportation Kip Douglass said. "In addition to having a strong team, we now have a larger and more strategic presence on the West Coast to better serve our clients."

David O'Connor, also a Crowley director of North America transportation, called it a "win-win for everyone," that would also allow the firm to grow its trucking, intermodal, and logistics services.
