OUR TEAM

The CLS team of staffing experts was selected based upon their extensive vessel and cargo chartering, dispatch operations, construction, industrial, and maritime experience. Our managing partner is a maritime logistics professional with over 25 years of experience in vessel logistics, within the Gulf of Mexico and internationally. As CLS expands to include new industries, such as construction and renewable energy, we introduce members who are also well-versed in these areas. Our team members are knowledgeable in U.S. Government formalities, transportation dispatch operations (offered around the clock, 365 days a year), freight forwarding, and project management. CLS has over 75 years of combined staffing experience and has worked under the supervision of NASA, USCG, BOEMRE, FBI, DOI, and DNV.

I can do things you cannot. You can do things I cannot. Together, we can do great things.
