CaroTrans Adds Direct Le Havre to Charleston Import Service

Ultra-Fast All-Water LCL Service, 12 Days to Charleston

CLARK, NJ--(Marketwired - Mar 31, 2015) - CaroTrans, a leading global NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) and ocean freight consolidator, today announces the addition of an expedited Le Havre, France to Charleston LCL import service. This is the only direct, weekly Le Havre to Charleston LCL service available in the market. It is a 12 day transit to Charleston and a maximum of 3 additional days to destinations in the U.S. South Atlantic region. The Le Havre departure point eliminates the congestion, delays and additional handling associated with routing via Antwerp. 

"Our Le Havre office was established in 2012 as a platform for future growth. We are pleased to see this come to fruition as we announce another fast-to-market, direct import service from Le Havre. Our local, empowered CaroTrans teams are committed to delivering the best customer experience possible," said Greg Howard, CEO of CaroTrans. Local CaroTrans teams are located at origin and destination to provide dedicated support to customers in each area. 

Charleston is CaroTrans' third direct LCL import service from Le Havre. Services to Houston and New York are also offered. France is one of the six leading exporters in the world and trade represents more than 60% of the country's GDP. The European Union, U.S. and China are Frances main trade partners (WTO, avg. for 2011-2013, alphainternationaltrade.com). France's main exports include powered aircraft, medicine, motor vehicles and parts/accessories (Comtrade). 

In the U.S., CaroTrans has a comprehensive U.S. network of owned offices and container freight stations that support the reliable, secure flow of import cargo. This infrastructure results in reduced inland transportation costs and freight handling, and immediate availability to local personnel.
