Industry sources estimate that there are about 1.2 million seafarers crewing vessels on the ocean trades, and only 2 percent, or 24,000, are women. The industry needs to do better, and @GCaptain explores the subject in this recent editorial entitled: “Why gender diversity matters aboard ships.” Take a look at http://crow.ly/2oddb1e

For the 17th year, Crowley Fuels served as the official fuel sponsor for the Iron Dog, the world's longest, toughest snow machine race, stretching 2,031 miles across Alaska. This year, the course passed through three towns served by Crowley, including Galena, Nome and Fairbanks, allowing Crowley employees to man the checkpoints and refuel the snow machines and the spirits of 70 racers.

In 1978 we launched La Reina, the world's largest triple-deck Roll-On/Roll-Off (Ro/Ro) barge at the time to transport cargo between the U.S. Mainland and Puerto Rico. Setting the standard for trade with the island, the vessel earned a spot in the 1980 Guinness Book of World records for its size. Later, the company introduced even larger Ro/Ro barges, helping to cement our commitment to dependable, innovative service that continues today with the construction of two, new LNG-powered ConRo ships. http://crow.ly/2nqId8L

During the Golden Gate International Exposition celebration in 1939, two years after the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge, Crowley operated speedboat and cruise rides out to the new landmark. In preparation to serve many of the more than 17 million people who would attend the World's Fair, the company refurbished its two double-deck passenger boats, Crowley No. 17 and Crowley No. 18; bought four Chris-Craft speedboats; and built two glass-enclosed water taxis, named Crowley No. I and Crowley No. 2. As the longest suspension bridge main span in the world at the time, the Golden Gate Bridge was, and remains, one of the most iconic structures in San Francisco and the world. #Crowley125 #TBT
