Bowhead Transport and Crowley Marine Services, Inc., have formed a joint venture, called UIC Bowhead-Crowley, to provide marine services in Arctic Alaska.

Bowhead Transport, a subsidiary of Ukpeaġvik Iñupiat, the Alaska Native Village of Barrow, Alaska, provides common carriage service to coastal communities in Alaska, and Crowley provides marine transportation, energy support and petroleum distribution services throughout the state.

“This new partnership is really tailored to meet the needs of customers in the oil and gas; mining and minerals; and engineering, procurement and construction management industries,” said Bruce Harland, Crowley’s vice president in Anchorage, Alaska, in a written statement.

“We look to provide greater efficiency, lower costs, expanded capabilities and higher value to our customers through the joint venture,” added Jim Dwight, general manager of Bowhead Transport.
