CaroTrans Announces Integration With ACCU-TRACK Warehouse Scanning Technology

Visibility via the Web Is Immediately Available as Soon as Cargo Is Received, Scanned and Photographed

UNION, NJ--(Marketwire - Jun 27, 2011) - CaroTrans, a leading global NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) and ocean freight consolidator, today announces that they are integrated with the state-of-the-art AZ ACCU-TRACK receiving system. CaroTrans' LCL (less than container load) customers are now able to view digital images of cargo at time of receipt and track shipments in real-time over the internet. Cargo is scanned within seconds after it is received in AZ's New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago warehouses. AZ is a U.S. based Container Freight Station (CFS) company with fulfillment, distribution, and trucking services and has been a principal CFS partner of CaroTrans for over fifteen years. With the ACCU-TRACK system, forwarders are able to search shipment data by lot, load, booking, and container number online, anytime, 24/7.

CaroTrans' clients, who are primarily freight forwarders, benefit from enhanced, real-time verification data, including piece count and cargo condition, allowing them to better serve their shipper customers. "AZ's ACCU-TRACK technology helps our forwarder customers manage the integrity of their customers' freight and the various aspects associated with cargo security and safety, including claims and shortages. We believe it is critically important to provide our customers with greater visibility to their shipments," said Greg Howard, Global CEO, CaroTrans.

Richard Lombardi, President, AZ, commented, "As soon as cargo is received in our warehouse, it is scanned and photographed using our ACCU-TRAK Web-based receiving system. This technology delivers real-time shipment data to CaroTrans' customers via the Web allowing them to closely track and better manage their customers' shipments."
