CaroTrans Adds Direct Atlanta-Gothenburg Link
CaroTrans, a global NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) and ocean freight consolidator, began a new Northern Europe service connection with the addition of a direct Atlanta-Gothenburg LCL service. The service has a 21-day transit time. A Gothenburg-to-Atlanta service will follow in this month.
CaroTrans, with its dedicated partner Nordicon, a leading neutral, NVO consolidator in the Nordic region, offers complete point-to-point distribution services at origin and destination, and online shipment management including rate calculations, bookings and end-to-end track and trace visibility. Nordicon has offices in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark, and its own warehouse in Gothenburg. CaroTrans offers a comprehensive network of local U.S. container freight stations and 13 offices nationwide.
The Nordic region, which includes Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway, is an important U.S. import/export trade area, with a population of 30 million people. The region purchased $11.3 billion in U.S. exports in 2015. The United States imported $26.9 billion in goods from the Nordic region in 2015, with Sweden the leading import/export trade partner.
CaroTrans and Nordicon deliver the following comprehensive U.S.-Nordic region service network:
Gothenburg to Chicago and New York; New York to Helsinki, Oslo, and Gothenburg; and Los Angeles, Chicago; and Atlanta to Gothenburg.
“Our goal is to provide logistics service providers with the secure, efficient transportation options they require to keep their customers’ supply chains up and running as scheduled,” said Greg Howard, CaroTrans, CEO. “Direct services reduce handling and add stability so are the optimal transportation choice.”
“Nordicon and CaroTrans have established a strong and trusted partnership during the last 14 years,” said Linus Ahlm, CEO of Nordicon group. “With a portfolio of eight weekly, direct services between the United States and the Nordic region, we offer one of the strongest consolidation platforms in the market. Our new service from Atlanta to Gothenburg is just another step in eliminating transshipment costs and reducing transit times for our customers.”
