Corrigan earns Legacy Award; TEDxFSCJ to look at how youth crime impacts community.
Crowley Maritime Corp. has established a flow of relief cargo into San Juan, Puerto Rico, following Hurricane Maria, the devastating Category 4 storm that made direct impact with the island Wednesday.
Crowley sent six ships to the island with more than 2,200 full container loads of food and aid cargo, as well as commercial goods.
In addition to the incoming barge loads, the company currently has more than 2,200 full container loads of food and aid cargo, as well as commercial goods, stored and awaiting distribution at the company’s Isla Grande terminal.
“Our focus and priority continues to be on the safety and health of our employees and the recovery efforts for all the families of Puerto Rico,” said Crowley’s John Hourihan, senior vice president and general manager, Puerto Rico services.
“A key component to reopening the supply chain will be the availability of truck power to move the loads to their inland destinations and the ability of our customers to receive cargo,” Hourihan said. “With so much damage to infrastructure and facilities, this will be a challenge, but we remain optimistic about the resiliency of the people of Puerto Rico and their desire to do whatever is necessary to recover as quickly as possible.”
The company said its Isla Grande terminal suffered only minor damage in the storm. The company has about 300 employees in Puerto Rico.
