What's so odd Fred, looks legit ?

"Crowley, which has about 300 Puerto Rico employees, has served the Puerto Rico market since 1954, longer than any other Jones Act carrier in the trade.

The company provides marine solutions, energy and logistics services in domestic and international markets by means of six operating lines of business: Puerto Rico liner services, international liner services, logistics services, petroleum services, marine services and technical services.

Ah hell man, I didn't mean to insinuate it wasn't legit, my bad. Maybe the "creepy factor" just got the better of me seeing the Crowley name plastered all over the Puerto Rico story, it happens... :)
