  • CaroTrans adds a new weekly LCL service from Atlanta to Tokyo, Yokohama and more, eliminating transshipment.
  • Transpacific supply chains require service flexibility, increased transportation choices for reliable freight delivery
  • Global freight forwarding depends on global ocean transportation choices to meet customers’ supply chain requirements.

Non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC) and ocean freight consolidator, CaroTrans, now provides a new weekly less than container load (LCL) service from Atlanta to major markets in Japan including Tokyo, Yokohama, Kobe, Nagoya and Osaka. This service eliminates transshipment and double handling in Los Angeles and Busan, resulting in less risk, less cargo moving and faster transit time.

Freight moves from Atlanta to Tokyo in 29 days, Yokohama in 30, and Osaka, Nagoya and Kobe in 33 days.

Seino Logix, CaroTrans’ partner of 16 years, provides secure unpack and expedited distribution throughout Japan. The complete CaroTrans-Seino Logix service portfolio is comprised of six export services—Chicago, Charleston, New York/New Jersey, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle to Japan, and now Atlanta. Import services include Japan to Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami and New York/New Jersey.

“Recent market challenges reveal the need for transportation alternatives for global supply chains. Today’s transpacific supply chains require service flexibility and increased transportation choices to ensure reliable, timely freight delivery,” says Greg Howard, CEO of CaroTrans.

To provide the global freight forwarding community with dependable global ocean transportation choices and a stable network to meet its customers’ supply chain requirements, CaroTrans has added six new, weekly and direct LCL and FCL services in the last six months.
