CaroTrans Launches Weekly NVO Service From Houston to Rio

CaroTrans, a global non-vessel operating common carrier and ocean freight consolidator, has launched a direct weekly export service, handling both less-than-containerload (LCL) and full-containerload (FCL) cargoes, from Houston to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Offering a 25-day transit, the service complements the company's existing direct export service from Houston to Santos. It also marks the continued expansion of a north-south service network by CaroTrans and Craft Multimodal, its NVO partner in South America. In 2012, CaroTrans added Argentina and Uruguay to its South American network in tandem with Craft. Also that year, it added a direct LCL export service from Miami, Fla. to Itajai, Brazil. CaroTrans has 14 local offices and 23 container freight stations throughout North America, providing consolidation and deconsolidation services.
