  • New CaroTrans Busan-to-Atlanta all-water service reduces cargo handling, increases efficiency and reliability.
  • The transit time for the new CaroTrans Busan-to-Atlanta service is 27 days.
  • Intermodal service from Atlanta to six southern states is also available through CaroTrans.

CaroTrans, a global non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC) and ocean freight consolidator, recently announced a new, weekly less-than-containerload (LCL) service between Busan and Atlanta.

The company says the direct service is a secure, cost efficient option which eliminates the extra handling associated with cargo routing via Los Angeles and New York. The transit time is 27 days.

Expedited inland points intermodal (IPI) service to Alabama, North and South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee is also available.

CaroTrans exclusively partners with leading independent NVO, MOLAX, in South Korea. MOLAX has a 26-year history and a well-established network supported by an experienced team. The CaroTrans-MOLAX alliance offers dedicated, local service for import and export cargo moving between the U.S. and northern Asia. The import network, now with the addition of Atlanta, consists of seven direct, weekly LCL services between South Korea and Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Seattle and Miami.

“Shippers require service alternatives to help them grow globally,” said Greg Howard, the CaroTrans CEO. “Direct, weekly LCL transportation options enable companies of all sizes, but especially small to mid-size businesses, the ability to dispatch smaller freight volumes to customers in global markets offering greater flexibility and inventory control.”

Howard added that CaroTrans is committed to providing technology solutions that enhance the efficient management and processing of global ocean shipments. “For imports, we deliver an online freight release e-tool that expedites the release of import cargo and offers direct cargo control for customers,” he said.

CaroTrans has a network of offices in Asia, Europe, South America, Oceania, and the United States, along with strong local partners. The CaroTrans suite of web-based and EDI-enabled ecommerce tools include booking, ocean and inland rates, sailing schedules, and tracking.
