CaroTrans Adds Direct Busan to Atlanta LCL Service to Streamline Transpacific Supply Chains

 

All-water service reduces cargo handling, increases efficiency and reliability

 

 

Clark, New Jersey, May 23, 2016CaroTrans, a leading global NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) and ocean freight consolidator, today announces a new, weekly LCL (less-than-containerload) service between Busan and Atlanta.  This direct service is a secure, cost efficient option which eliminates the extra handling associated with cargo routing via Los Angeles and New York.  The transit time is 27 days.  In addition, expedited IPI (inland points intermodal) service to Alabama, North and South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee is available.

 

CaroTrans exclusively partners with leading independent NVO, MOLAX, in South Korea.  MOLAX has a 26 year history and a well-established network supported by an experienced team.  The CaroTrans-MOLAX alliance offers dedicated, local service for import and export cargo moving between the U.S. and Northern Asia.  The import network, now with the addition of Atlanta, consists of seven direct, weekly LCL services between South Korea and Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Seattle and Miami.

 

“Shippers require service alternatives to help them grow globally.  Direct, weekly LCL transportation options enable companies of all sizes, but especially small to mid-size businesses, the ability to dispatch smaller freight volumes to customers in global markets offering greater flexibility and inventory control,” said Greg Howard, CaroTrans, CEO. “Along with building a comprehensive global network with more and more direct LCL service options, we are committed to providing technology solutions that enhance the efficient management and processing of global ocean shipments.  For imports, we deliver an online freight release e-tool that expedites the release of import cargo and offers direct cargo control for customers.”

 

CaroTrans continues to add direct, weekly LCL service options to its global network, expanding trade lanes and adding more point-to-point services to avoid congested hubs and boost efficiency.
