CaroTrans Continues China-U.S. LCL Import Network Expansion

CaroTrans Continues China-U.S. LCL Import Network Expansion

– Launches 11 weekly, direct Xiamen and Ningbo to U.S. services –

Clark, New Jersey, October 22, 2015CaroTrans, a leading global NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) and ocean freight consolidator, today announces 11 new, direct LCL import services between China and the U.S. including:

  •  Ningbo to Los Angeles, Oakland, Seattle, Chicago, New York, Miami, Dallas and Houston
  • Xiamen to Los Angeles, Chicago and New York.

These services launched late August 2015.  CaroTrans is strengthening its existing China network which consists of its own team in Shanghai and now a new alliance with Portever Shipping Ltd., a local NVO based in Ningbo.  With this solid foundation in place CaroTrans plans to continue expanding its direct port pairs between China and the U.S.

“Consistent and frequent LCL services provide the supply chain options and flexibility shippers need today.  With this new cooperation with PortEver, we’re broadening our China-U.S. scope of import services to address the needs of our logistics service provider customers that are looking for alternative service solutions,” said Greg Howard, CEO of CaroTrans.

March 2015, CaroTrans added 2 Shanghai import services including Seattle and Atlanta, both providing alternatives to U.S. Southwest ports.  These services represent CaroTrans’ 6th and 7th direct services from Shanghai to the U.S.  Service is also available from Shanghai to Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, New York, and Miami.  Altogether, CaroTrans offers over 60 direct China-U.S. LCL import and export services.

Throughout the U.S., CaroTrans has a comprehensive network of container freight stations and 13 offices to serve the needs of local customers.
