Crowley Maritime, a US provider of shipping services, and IbisTek, a Ghana-based provider of packaged engineering solutions, have announced the formation of a joint venture, called IbisTek Crowley Limited.
The joint venture will provide project logistics, energy support services and emergency response capabilities in Ghana. The partnership is designed to leverage Crowley’s worldwide logistics footprint and project expertise and IbisTek’s existing relationships and customer base in the region.
