Non-vessel-operating common carrier CaroTrans has started a direct Los Angeles-to-Suva, Fiji less-than-containerload service.
The NVO said the typical transit time to this market has been reduced from 32-36 days to 12 days via this new service.
Expedited and bonded on forwarding from Suva to markets Nadi and Lautoka are offered, CaroTrans said.
For 25 years, CaroTrans has partnered with Williams & Gosling (W&G), a logistics service provider in Fiji with 300 staff and offices in all major markets, including Suva, Lautoka, Nadi and Ba.
CaroTrans' operations in Australia and New Zealand are strong service providers in Fiji. With the addition of this U.S. export service, the NVO said it will expand its services and reach in the Pacific Rim.
“We are pleased to add this new U.S.-Fiji service to our comprehensive global service network and provide an expedited service that serves Fiji’s import needs,” said Greg Howard, global chief executive officer of CaroTrans, in a statement.
