Delivering to St. George Logistics

Issue Date: August 20, 2021

 

Effective Monday, August 23rd, STG Logistics will require compliance with the three conditions below for all export freight deliveries. Failure to comply may result in receiving delays, trucking detention and/or refusal of freight.

 

·     Cargo should be properly consigned to “STG Logistics c/o CaroTrans.” This must appear on the BOL being tendered at the time the cargo is being dropped off.

 

·     Freight must be labeled with the applicable, CaroTrans booking number.

 

·     A typed (not handwritten) booking number must appear on the BOL being tendered at the time the cargo is being dropped off.

 

This will speed up both the delivery process and dock receipt turnaround times. In addition to this, it ensures your cargo is correctly placed within our inventory for a smooth ocean container planning and loading.

 

As a reminder, all CaroTrans booking confirmations have the CFS address listed in the bottom right-hand corner of the page.

 

Your support is greatly appreciated. Please do not hesitate to contact your local CaroTrans representative if you have any questions or need additional information regarding current/future deliveries to St. George Logistics c/o CaroTrans.
