July 07, 2016: CaroTrans, a leading global NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) and ocean freight consolidator, adds second direct, weekly Less than Container Load (LCL) service between Milan and New York from the first week of July.
Milan is a key hub for goods manufactured in the northern industrial area and all of Italy, as well as cargo moving from Switzerland, Austria and Slovenia.
Both services have 14-day transits enabling consistent, fluid delivery of LCL freight to North American markets for timely local distribution.
CaroTrans offers these reliable import products in cooperation with strategic partner, Euro Italian Freight Systems in Milan. Together they offer direct, twice weekly services from Milan to New York and Milan to Chicago.
In North America, CaroTrans has 13 local offices and 25 strategically positioned CFS (container freight stations) to serve the transportation needs of shippers in local markets.
"Direct services and frequent sailings provide the service alternatives logistics providers require to serve their customers' time-focused supply chains," said Greg Howard, CEO, CaroTrans.
Carmen Ronzoni, director, Euro Italian Freight Systems, said, "An additional weekly service is a significant service advantage. It enhances the timely movement of cargo and delivery to final destination. In addition, we offer an efficient truck service network throughout Italy providing reliable pick-up and transits."
