U.S. based shipping and logistics company Crowley announced it has acquired Tamarind Consolidated, a logistics services company serving the U.S. to the British Virgin Islands.

The acquisition will transition Tamarind’s operations and services, including warehousing and non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC) services, to Crowley. According to Crowley, the expansion complements its existing maritime and logistics solutions and will expand solutions for customers in Virgin Gorda and surrounding BVI locations. Tamarind president Ralph Nazario will transition to Crowley in a consulting role.

“Since 1985, Tamarind has offered containerized cargo transportation and related services that provide customized solutions that customers depend on between the U.S. and the British Virgin Islands,” Nazario said. “Crowley has the capabilities and technology to elevate the service we offer to the importers in Virgin Gorda, and I am confident the evolution by merging with Crowley will provide our customers with the customer service and logistics capabilities they need to succeed and grow.”

Crowley has provided ocean shipping, warehousing and distribution, customs brokerage, insurance and door delivery for more than 60 years in the Caribbean.

“Tamarind and Crowley are a natural fit with our shared understanding of the supply chain needs of customers in the British Virgin Islands and the companies’ commitment to being a lasting partner for customers,” said Brett Bennett, senior vice president and general manager, Crowley Logistics. “This is an exciting expansion for Crowley, and we look forward to building on the success of Tamarind so customers can benefit from the efficiencies, scale and technology available at Crowley.”
