"We understand how integral the aviation industry is in Alaska for businesses and residents," said Bob Cox, vice president, petroleum distribution.

Aviation fuels are transported from local Alaska refineries, or in the case of Avgas, which is not produced in-state, from the West Coast, to Crowley's local Alaska terminals via long haul trucks or specialized barges. From Crowley terminals, local trucks can then deliver fuels to various aircraft, airports, tanks and stations. Crowley has long emphasized safety and quality control, and it's particularly important for aviation fuels. Aviation fuel, which is one of the most carefully controlled petroleum products, must meet demanding quality standards for the safety of anyone who uses aircraft. At every point in the process, Crowley maintains strict protocols backed with significant investment in employee training to ensure the fuel is transported, stored and handled correctly. Referred to as "Aviation Boot Camp," Crowley sets the standard for fuel handling and quality training for employees to ensure the fuel and operations meet the highest regulatory and company standards. Quality, round-the-clock service represents Crowley's approach, now and in the future, to finding innovative, dependable solutions to meet customer needs.
