  • CaroTrans adds new import services, addressing the need for supply chain flexibility to ensure accurate freight delivery

Starting July 7, CaroTrans will offer direct weekly less than container load (LCL) import service from Milan, Italy to Charleston, South Carolina.

The first sailing of the new service is scheduled for July 7 and will feature a 21 day transit with one-three day connections to Miami, Tampa, Charlotte, Atlanta, Savannah, Dallas and Houston.

In addition, DAP (delivered at place/Incoterm rules) services are available to South Carolina, North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Virginia, Mississippi and Texas.

CaroTrans’ well-established partner, EURO Italian Freight Systems, offers complete and efficient freight handling at origin for dependable import service delivery.



The LCL service will sail from the port of Genoa with cargoes ranging from industrial goods, aircraft/aerospace components, auto parts, food, wine and chemicals.

“Alternative LCL and FCL transportation solutions address the need for supply chain flexibility that helps ensure freight arrives as scheduled,” says Greg Howard, CEO of CaroTrans. “We’re pleased to add a third direct import service from Milan,” he adds,  “the Charleston service complements our existing services to Chicago and New York/New Jersey.”

With the addition of the Milan-Charleston service, CaroTrans Import Service Network now consists of 140 direct import services between the U.S. and global locations.  CaroTrans recently announced new Le Havre-Charleston, Shanghai-Seattle and Japan-Miami services.
