CaroTrans Expands Local Midwest Receiving Station Network

Addition of Cincinnati and Indianapolis CFS Strengthens Commitment to Midwest Region

CLARK, NJ--(Marketwired - Dec 9, 2014) -  CaroTrans, a leading global NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) and ocean freight consolidator, today announces the addition of Cincinnati and Indianapolis to its Midwest CFS (container freight station) network which is comprised of Chicago, Columbus, Cleveland and Detroit. Local CaroTrans CFS (container freight stations) offer forwarders simplified freight rate processing and greater convenience. Local market proximity to CFS reduces inland transportation costs and cargo handling for greater cost savings and security. Overall, CaroTrans' U.S. network includes local teams at 14 U.S. offices and 23 CFS (container freight stations).

Andrew Weisse, CaroTrans branch manager, Chicago, will oversee the Indianapolis receiving station and Maggie Piktel, CaroTrans branch manager, Cleveland will manage the Cincinnati CFS.

"The Cincinnati station gives our customers near this major market the ease of dropping off freight close to their own facility rather than trucking to Chicago. This expansion is part of our commitment to superior customer service and being close to our customers. They know they can call and someone will always pick up the phone," said Maggie Piktel, CaroTrans branch manager, Cleveland.

Andrew Weisse, branch manager, Chicago remarked, "With our new Indianapolis CFS, customers now have a local delivery, same day transport option in the region which simplifies processing and offers a single, end-to-end rate for global shipments."

"We're continuously looking for new and better ways to serve customers by enhancing our U.S. and global network. From CaroTrans you'll see ongoing development, from new receiving stations and offices to broadening our range of direct, reliable and secure global services," said Greg Howard, CEO of CaroTrans.
