Crowley adds new container ships.

Crowley Maritime Corp. on Sept. 28 said it has enhanced its Caribbean islands service with two new, bigger, faster container ships--the Eclips and Ocean. Each ship offers about 200 more TEUs of capacity and twice the number of reefer plugs--about 160--than the Sea Gale and Sea Cloud, the ships they are replacing. Running at about 18.5 knots, the new ships are about two knots faster, which should result in even better transit times and schedule integrity, said Rudy Leming, VP of Caribbean islands services, which allow customers to ship groceries, department store merchandise, building materials, refrigerated and frozen goods, household goods, vehicles and Freight of All Kinds (FAK) in a variety of equipment including 20-foot standard and 40-foot standard and high-cube containers, reefers, flat racks and other specialized equipment.
