June 12th Marks First Sailing From Atlanta

CLARK, NJ--(Marketwired - Jun 3, 2015) - CaroTrans, a leading global NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) and ocean freight consolidator, today announces a new weekly LCL (less than container load) service from Atlanta to major markets in Japan including: Tokyo, Yokohama, Kobe, Nagoya and Osaka. As compared to other routing options, this service eliminates transshipment and double handling in Los Angeles and Busan resulting in less risk and cargo moving with greater reliability and stability. Moreover, there are no transshipment costs and transit times are faster.

Freight moves from Atlanta to Tokyo in 29 days, Yokohama in 30 days, and Osaka, Nagoya and Kobe in 33 days. 

In Japan, CaroTrans' trusted partner of 16 years, Seino Logix, provides secure unpack and expedited distribution throughout Japan. Overall, the CaroTrans - Seino Logix service portfolio is comprised of 6 export services -- Chicago, Charleston, New York/New Jersey, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle to Japan, and now Atlanta. Import services include Japan to Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami and New York/New Jersey.

"Recent market challenges revealed the need for transportation alternatives for global supply chains. Today's transpacific supply chains require service flexibility and increased transportation choices to ensure reliable, timely freight delivery. Along with Seino Logix, we're committed to dependable, secure U.S.-Japan consolidation and deconsolidation and transportation services to ensure our clients are effectively serving their customers' transpacific shipping needs," said Greg Howard, CEO of CaroTrans.
