CaroTrans Increases Value-Added, Transpacific Services With Direct South China to U.S. Southeast LCL Service

First Sailing of Weekly Hong Kong to Atlanta Service Is October 14th

CLARK, NJ--(Marketwired - Oct 8, 2013) - CaroTrans, a leading global NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) and ocean freight consolidator, today announces another expedited LCL import service from China, a direct Hong Kong to Atlanta connection. This South China service covers the entire Pearl River Delta region including main cities Guangzhou and Shenzhen, as well as Xiamen with consolidations in Hong Kong. Imports arrive in Atlanta with express connections to 10 IPI points throughout the U.S. Southeast. This weekly service has a 22 day transit, the fastest in the market. Destination unpack provides cargo availability within 24 hours at Hartsfield warehouse. 

CaroTrans has a comprehensive Asia LCL import service network with less cargo handling for reduced supply chain risk and greater reliability. With direct LCL services, transshipment costs are eliminated and transit times are faster offering greater value and service predictability for time-sensitive import shipments. 

"As a top U.S. trading partner, China is a critically important market for CaroTrans to grow and develop," says Greg Howard, Global CEO, CaroTrans. "We are pleased to offer this new LCL import service from Hong Kong to the important U.S. Southeast gateway. This service continues to expand our scope of China to U.S. services." Earlier in the year, CaroTrans announced a second weekly Shanghai to New York service, and a new Shanghai to Atlanta service. CaroTrans' Asia - U.S. network features dedicated CaroTrans sales and support teams at origin and destination.

In North America, CaroTrans has a local network of 14 branch offices and 23 CFS (container freight stations) strategically placed to deliver reliable and secure import and export cargo moves.
