The non-vessel-operating common carrier CaroTrans said Tuesday it will add two Shanghai-to-U.S. less-than-containerload (LCL) services to its transpacific services.
The services include a new connection between Shanghai and Atlanta, scheduled to start April 7, while the other is a service from Shanghai to New York, beginning May 5.
The weekly Shanghai-Atlanta service offers expedited inland point intermodal (IPI) services to locations throughout the U.S. Southeast and a 21-day transit. Cargo will be available within 24 hours at the Atlanta Forward Air container freight station (CFS).
CaroTrans’ second, weekly Shanghai-to-New York service provides flexibility, fast transits, and broad coverage of the Northeast with express IPI services offered throughout the region, the NVO said.
“We are pleased to offer these expedited Shanghai LCL services, along with our full scope of Asia-U.S. services, to streamline transpacific supply chains,” said Greg Howard, global chief executive officer of CaroTrans, in a statement. “Additionally, we’re committed to providing advanced e-commerce solutions, such as our Online Freight Release solution, which provides freight forwarders with direct control of the release of their customers’ cargo.” - Eric Johnson
