The development follows the easing of congestion at West Coast ports, the company said. The weekly service, with a 26-day transit, addresses customers' preference for a direct, all-water service to the U.S. West Coast, CaroTrans said. It complements the NVO's network of direct import services from Rotterdam, including service to Chicago, Charleston, Miami, New York and Houston. CaroTrans partners with independent consolidator Cleve & Zonen in the Netherlands and Belgium for those services. In addition to the Rotterdam and Antwerp routes, CaroTrans offers direct import services from Spain, the U.K. and Germany to Los Angeles.
