CaroTrans, a leading global NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) and ocean freight consolidator, today announces further expansion of its Asia import network with a new multi-origin Japan to Miami LCL service. The first sailing was February 27th. Direct consolidations from five Japan origins – Kobe, Nagoya, Osaka, Tokyo and Yokohama to Miami occur each week. CaroTrans, with extensive Latin American connections, delivers a one-stop transportation solution for LCL freight moving to Caribbean and Central and South American destinations from Japan. CaroTrans Miami provides a reliable, affordable service for all kinds of LCL cargo moving south or destined for the Florida market.
“Miami is our 5th direct, weekly service to the U.S. from Japan further strengthening our network that includes services to Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and Atlanta. It is an important connection for U.S. clients in Florida and boosts our North-South service network. Our Miami branch is strategically positioned to facilitate Japan import cargo flows to Latin America,” said Greg Howard, CEO of CaroTrans.
In Miami, CaroTrans has a dedicated team that handles all aspects of the import process. “We utilize a secure, state-of-the-art warehouse in Miami which allows us to provide high-value, reliable management of cargo flowing to Florida and Latin American destinations,” said Kika Veiga, CaroTrans branch manager in Miami. The Latin American market GDP (gross domestic product) as a whole is projected to grow 2.2% in 2015 according to IMF (International Monetary Fund). In 2015, a strong U.S. economic recovery is expected to benefit Caribbean and Central America trade.
