CaroTrans has an established U.S. infrastructure, including 24 local CFS (container freight stations), that provide customers with local support and experience throughout the U.S.  On the West Coast, CaroTrans offers consolidation centers in Seattle, Portland and San Francisco for expedited service to the Los Angeles gateway.

Central America is a robust region for U.S. exports and one which Carotrans has been servicing for over 30 years. The U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration calculates that there are 40 million potential buyers in Central America.  50% of the region’s imports come from the United States.  Ongoing infrastructure development in this area increases demand for construction equipment and road building machinery.  Other best prospects for exports include medical equipment and devices and safety/security products.

 

CaroTrans continues to grow its global LCL and FCL service network by adding direct, expedited import and export services to serve market demand.  January 2014, CaroTrans further developed its transpacific service network between the U.S. and Northern Asia.  A N.Y. to St. Petersburg, Russia export service was added November 2013.

Russia’s entrance into the WTO (World Trade Organization) in 2012 brought greater confidence and stability to businesses and trading partners, as well as strengthened their place in the global economy.  May 2013, CaroTrans announced its entrance into the Baltic, Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), and Russia markets with a weekly LCL and FCL export service from New York.  Currently, this service calls the Port of Riga in Latvia.  This service represents CaroTrans’ first step in their development and investment in this growing trade area.
