CAROTRANS PROVIDES WEEKLY SOUTH AFRICAN SERVICE FROM CHARLESTON
CaroTrans International has started weekly less-than-containerload and full-containerload cargo services from Charleston, S.C., to South Africa’s ports of Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg.
The Union, N.J.-based non-vessel-operating common carrier will use this service to consolidate cargo from Atlanta, Charlotte, Houston, Memphis, Miami, Nashville, New Orleans and Savannah as its South Atlantic and Gulf hub to South Africa.
“Using this routing, our transit times from Charleston are 17 days to Cape Town, 19 days to Durban, and 24 days to Johannesburg, significantly shorter than a New York-based service and brining South Africa closer to our shippers,” said Michael Forkenbrock, vice president of sales in the United States for CaroTrans.
World Groupage Services serves as CaroTrans agent in South Africa.
CaroTrans also continues to offer the Port of New York/New Jersey as the gateway for cargo from the West Coast, Pacific Northwest and Midwest.
