CaroTrans opens in Le Havre

June 20 - Global NVOCC and ocean freight consolidator, CaroTrans, has opened a branch office in Le Havre, France; creating the foundation for future growth in the country.

In May, CaroTrans created a specialised breakbulk, out-of-gauge and ro-ro team to serve local forwarders in all 14 CaroTrans office locations in the USA, and now says that container freight stations will be established in Paris and Lyon, France to serve local shippers with secure, expedited services.

The company adds that Le Havre is an important European gateway for its FCL and LCL services to and from points in the USA, Asia, Middle East, South America and Canada and is a natural platform for freight moving to West Africa from these regions.

The Le Havre office is the second new office for CaroTrans in 2012, with last month's opening in Seattle to serve global freight forwarders in the Pacific Northwest.

"We are committed to strengthening our presence in Europe with strategically placed branches in key markets," saidGreg Howard, CaroTrans, Global CEO. "The next phase of our expansion in Europe will likely be setting up CaroTrans offices in Paris and Marseilles."
