CaroTrans, a global NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) and ocean freight consolidator, announced a new cooperation with MOLAX LINE, an independent NVO in South Korea, which the companies say will create a stronger, more robust LCL service network in the transpacific trade.

The CaroTrans-MOLAX alliance will offer secure, local service for import and export cargo moving between the U.S. and Northern Asia. CaroTrans has an extensive North American network of 14 branch offices and 24 CFS (container freight stations). In Busan, MOLAX owns and operates a 380,000 sq. foot warehouse and will have a second warehouse of 360,000 sq. feet completed mid-2014.

The comprehensive CaroTrans–MOLAX service network includes direct export services from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, New York and Charleston to Busan. On-forwarding via Busan further extends coverage to North China, a wide-range of west coast ports in Japan, as well as Vladivostok, Russia.

Their import network consists of an array of direct, weekly services from South Korea to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Seattle and Miami. From these gateways, CaroTrans offers express interior point intermodal (IPI) connections to 70 locations throughout the U.S.

CaroTrans will continue to grow its transpacific service network by adding direct, expedited LCL/FCL import and export services to serve market demand. January 2013, CaroTrans added a direct, weekly LCL export service from San Francisco to Tokyo, Japan.
