Crowley Maritime Corp. is consolidating its Jacksonville operations, with Crowley Liner Services Inc. relocating its Puerto Rican service from its private terminal to the Jacksonville Port Authority's Talleyrand Marine Terminal.
Although John Hourihan, Crowley senior vice president and general manager of Puerto Rico operations, said the company considered other ports — including Savannah, Georgia; Charleston, South Carolina; and several small ports in the Southeast — the company ultimately decided to stay in Jacksonville, where it is headquartered.
