CaroTrans Now Offering Taiwan-New York LCL Service
Non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC) and ocean freight consolidator CaroTrans is now offering direct LCL (Less-than-Container Load) import services between Taiwan and the Port of New York/New Jersey.
The first sailing to the U.S. East Coast was scheduled for December 4. The new service features a 32-day transit from Taichung, Kaoshiung, and Keelung to New York with express connections to Baltimore, Boston, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh.
“There’s a need in marketplace today for efficient, direct transportation services and customer-focused, personalized service,” said Greg Howard, CEO of CaroTrans. “That’s why we’re continuously expanding our global transportation network to assist logistics service providers in their goal to deliver excellent supply chain solutions to their customers.”
The new Taiwan-New York service brings to three the number of direct import services CaroTrans offers linking Taiwan and the U.S. The others connect the Asian western Pacific nation with Chicago and Los Angeles.
Taiwan is a major exporter of electronics, electronic components, basic metals, plastics, rubber, optical and photographic instruments and chemicals.
