CaroTrans Resumes Rotterdam/Antwerp to Los Angeles Import Service

Service Restarts July 12th

CLARK, NJ--(Marketwired - Jul 9, 2015) - CaroTrans, a leading global NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) and ocean freight consolidator, today announces the resumption of their direct, all-water Rotterdam to Los Angeles import service, a 26 day transit. Over the last few months the lingering U.S. West Coast port congestion has eased, now enabling the resumption of this reliable, weekly import service. This addresses CaroTrans' customers' preference for a direct, all-water service to the U.S. West Coast as it is a more predictable schedule and requires less freight handling.

This weekly service complements CaroTrans network of direct import services from Rotterdam including service to: Chicago, Charleston, Miami, New York and Houston. CaroTrans partners with leading independent consolidator Cleve & Zonen in the Netherlands and Belgium for these services.

"The resumption of this service represents stable conditions at U.S. West Coast Ports which allows for the reinstatement of the Los Angeles gateway. Shippers require direct, reliable service options to ensure supply chain integrity and effective management of associated transportation costs," said Greg Howard, CEO of CaroTrans. 

In addition to Rotterdam and Antwerp, CaroTrans also offers direct, import services from Spain, UK and Germany to Los Angeles.
