   Crowley Maritime Corp. on Tuesday announced a realignment of its Shipping and Solutions business units to further enhance its focus on non-asset-based customer solutions.
    Commercial project management and engineering services will move to the Crowley Shipping business unit. Leading that team will be Shiju Zacharia (pictured above), who has been promoted to senior vice president and general manager.
    Based in Jacksonville, Fla., Zacharia will spearhead the $2.3 billion Defense Freight Transportation Services contract; relief and response services for FEMA and other public sector agencies and commands; expeditionary logistics offerings; and government ship management.
    Zacharia is a 2013 winner of the Thomas Crowley Award, the company’s highest honor. He joined Crowley in 2009 with more than a decade of technology experience developing, deploying and integrating state-of-the-art solutions to support high-level business objectives for major enterprise customers.

   Within the Solutions group, Vice President Mike Golonka will continue to lead the government ship management group and Rob Clapp will continue as vice president of Solutions planning and strategy. Both will report to Zacharia.
    The transition of project management and engineering services into the Crowley Shipping business unit led by Rob Grune, senior vice president and general manager, will complement the group’s vessel operations, ownership and management services. These encompass deep-sea petroleum tankers, tugboats and barges, Crowley’s liquefied natural gas-powered combination container/roll-on roll-off ships and offshore services.
    Vice President Ray Martus will continue his leadership of the project management group that includes vessel construction management, dry docking strategies and offshore marine projects. He will remain based in Jacksonville and report to Grune.
    Vice President Jay Edgar will continue to the lead the engineering services team, which encompasses all engineering and design-related offerings, including the company’s Seattle-based naval architecture and marine engineering subsidiary, Jensen Maritime. Based in Seattle, Edgar will report to Johan Sperling, vice president of Crowley marine services.

   

   Heinrich Hiesinger was elected to serve on the supervisory board of Deutsche Post AG during the company’s annual general meeting this week in Bonn, Germany.

   Hiesinger also is a member of the supervisory board of BMW AG. He will serve until the 2024 annual meeting.
    Re-elected to the supervisory board were Simone Menne, a member of various supervisory boards, and Stefan Schulte, chairman of the executive board of Fraport AG.

Louisiana is said to be the hardest-hit state by proposed tariffs overall, with the vast majority of that impact coming from soybeans. Not because we are the top soy-producing state, but because we are the gateway port for that product to the rest of the world.

Twelve container shipping companies deploy capacity from Asia to Mexico, with COSCO deploying the most capacity on the trade each week, according to BlueWater Reporting's Carrier/Trade Route Deployment Report.
