Jacksonville, Fla.-based third-party logistics provider Crowley Logistics Apparel Transportation
subsidiary has opened a 13,000-square-foot distribution center inside the El Naranjo Free Zone in
Guatemala. The center provides shipment consolidation/deconsolidation, inventory control, storage,
and local and regional distribution services; and supplements warehouse and distribution services
offered by Crowley Logistics de Guatemala at facilities in Guatemala City.
Crowley Logistics also operates distribution centers in South Florida, El Salvador and Honduras.
