  • Miami serves as an ideal hub for Italian goods bound for Central America and the Caribbean.
  • CaroTrans launches fourth direct service from Milan to the US.
  • CaroTrans also offers service from Milan, to Chicago, Charleston, and New York.

CaroTrans, a global non-vessel operating common carrier and ocean freight consolidator, has announced a new, direct weekly less than containerload service from Milan to Miami.

The new route will provide logistics service providers with an efficient, dependable supply chain option, according to a company statement.

Miami serves as an ideal hub for Italian goods bound for Central American and Caribbean destinations. The Milan-Miami service, a 14-day transit, is CaroTrans fourth direct service from Milan to the US. Service is also offered to Chicago, Charleston, and New York.

Milan is the main freight hub for products manufactured in Italy, as well as cargo moving from Switzerland, Austria, and Slovenia. Main US imports from Italy include beverages, industrial machinery and engines, automobiles, pharmaceuticals, and footwear, according to the US Census Bureau.

Euro Italian Freight Systems in Milan, CaroTrans’  dedicated partner in the region, has been serving the area for over 30 years and is one of Italy’s NVOCC pioneers. Euro Italian Freight has its own customs bonded import/export container freight station and operates a comprehensive global import/export network.

In North America, CaroTrans has 13 local offices and 25 strategically positioned container freight stations to serve the transportation needs of shippers in local markets.

“The current global containerized shipping market is marked by ongoing changes that impact today’s supply chains,” said Greg Howard, CEO of CaroTrans. “As a global NVO, we’re able to offer a broad range of secure, direct services that provide our customers with transportation solutions they can rely on. Our new Milan-Miami service, in partnership with Euro Italian Freight Systems, is another excellent service option that further expands our offerings.”

“We provide broad coverage of Italy origins with an efficient truck service network that offers dependable pick-up and transits,” said Carmen Ronzoni, director of Euro Italian Freight Systems. “Our partnership with CaroTrans continues to grow to support supply chain flexibility and the need for efficient transportation alternatives.”
