CLARK, NJ--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2013) - CaroTrans, a leading global NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) and ocean freight consolidator, today announces the addition of two Shanghai to U.S. LCL services to its comprehensive Asia - U.S. service network. The first sailing from Shanghai to Atlanta is scheduled for April 7th. The expanded New York service commences with a May 5th departure from Shanghai. CaroTrans' Asia - U.S. network features professional CaroTrans sales and support teams at origin and destination.
The weekly Shanghai-Atlanta service offers expedited IPI (inland point intermodal) services to locations throughout the U.S. Southeast and a 21 day transit, the shortest in the market. Cargo will be available within 24 hours at Atlanta Forward Air CFS (container freight station).
CaroTrans' second, weekly Shanghai to New York service provides added flexibility, fast transits, and broad coverage of the Northeast with express IPI services offered throughout the region. These direct services reduce cargo handling providing greater cargo integrity.
