13 Each time that Jose "Paché" Ayala, Crowley vice president for Puerto Rico liner services, talks to a customer, he hears the same enthusiastic question: How are the company's new pier, terminal and two ships coming? To the excitement of customers, the projects have hit the home stretch. And Ayala sees daily progress first hand at Crowley's Isla Grande terminal and pier in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The new L-shaped, 900-foot pier began taking shape after 441 pilings were driven into the harbor floor. Construction of the pier's concrete approach was completed as workers began building new terminal facilities, including a new exit gate system that will enhance the efficiency of cargo departures there. Meanwhile, the fabrication of three gantry cranes in Ireland is well under way, and delivery to Puerto Rico is expected in spring 2017. Left: Construction crews build the new approach for a 900-foot pier at Isla Grande terminal in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The completion of these improvements will result in enhanced supply chain solutions to our customers. We are going to bring speed."
