CaroTrans Expands Global Network with Launch of New Office in Europe

Le Havre, France branch establishes platform for future growth and direct global connections-

Clark, New Jersey, June 18,2012 – CaroTrans, a leading global NVOCC (non vessel

operating common carrier) and ocean freight consolidator, today announced the opening of

 a new CaroTrans branch in LeHavre, France. This new hub office in Europe creates the

 foundation for future growth and supports CaroTrans’ overall network of global operations.

 Container freight stations will be established in Paris and Lyon, France to serve local

 shippers with secure, expedited services. For inland moves throughout France and Europe,

 CaroTrans provides a comprehensive, door-to-door distribution network for consistent,

 reliable deliveries.


Le Havre is an important European gateway for CaroTrans’ full container load (FCL) and less

 than container load (LCL) services to and from points in the U.S., Asia, Middle East, South

America and Canada and is a natural platform for freight moving to West Africa from these

regions. Initially, CaroTrans’ Le Havre office will support FCL and LCL exports from the U.S.

 with exports from France to the U.S. soon to follow.


The LeHavre office is the second new office for CaroTrans in 2012. A CaroTrans office was

 opened in Seattle last month to serve global freight forwarders in the Pacific Northwest.

 “We are committed to strengthening our presence in Europe with strategically placed

 branches in key markets. CaroTrans branches, along with our network of dedicated agent

 partners, position us to provide the highest level of stable and secure customer service and

 support,” said Greg Howard, CaroTrans, Global CEO. “The next phase of our expansion in

 Europe will likely be setting up CaroTrans offices in Paris and Marseilles.”
