Monthly Los Angeles to Suva Fiji service is fastest in market

Clark, New Jersey, October 16, 2013 – CaroTrans, a leading global NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) and ocean freight consolidator, today announces a direct Los Angeles to Suva, Fiji LCL export service with a 12 day transit, the fastest transit in the market. This transit has been reduced from 32-36 days to 12. Expedited and bonded on forwarding from Suva, Fiji to main markets Nadi and Lautoka is offered. This service is now available.

For 25 years, CaroTrans has partnered with Williams & Gosling (W&G), a well-established logistics service provider in Fiji with 300 staff and offices in all major markets including: Suva, Lautoka, Nadi and Ba. W&G offers secure and timely unpack services in a state-of-the-art CFS (container freight station) in Wailekutu-Suva.

CaroTrans business units in Australia and New Zealand are dominant service providers in Fiji. With the addition of this U.S. export service, CaroTrans will effectively expand services and reach in the Pacific Rim.

“We are pleased to add this new U.S.-Fiji service to our comprehensive global service network and provide an expedited service that serves Fiji’s import needs,” said Greg Howard, Global CEO of CaroTrans.

Effective January 1993, Fiji, a country made up of 322 islands, became a signatory to the United States/Pacific Island Nations Joint Commercial Commission (JCC) which was created to promote commercial and economic relations between the United States and the independent Pacific island nations, including Fiji. Resources and support for U.S. exporters is provided by JCC’s administrative department, The Pacific Islands Development Program (PIDP) in Honolulu, which supports the continued development of this cooperation.
