  • 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.

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.
