CaroTrans Launches Direct Le Havre to Houston LCL Export Service

Strategic European Hub Location Offers Fastest Transits From France to U.S. Gulf

CLARK, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 03/31/14 -- CaroTrans, a leading global NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) and ocean freight consolidator, today announces a new, weekly LCL export service from Le Havre, France to Houston which will commence April 5th. This direct service shortens shipping time by 5-11 days for freight moving from France to the U.S. Gulf region including: Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, El Paso, Laredo Austin, New Orleans, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, as well as Los Angeles on the West Coast. The Le Havre departure point eliminates the congestion, delays and additional handling associated with routing via Antwerp and Rotterdam. Transit times are the fastest in the market.

Houston is a major manufacturing center that leads in energy/oil and gas, aerospace, medical, biotechnology, and software development. It is a strong trade link for France, a country with a solid manufacturing industry and export base including machinery and transportation equipment, aircraft, plastics, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, iron, steel, consumer products, petroleum and cars. As a gateway to Mexico and all of Latin America, Houston as a trade link facilitates expedited service for French exports to these important growth markets.

This new service expands the scope of CaroTrans global service network and adds to the company's depth of experience and specialization in the France - U.S. trade. Reliable, secure freight delivery is supported by a network of 14 local U.S. offices and 24 CFS (container freight stations) and the company's hub office in Le Havre.

"Houston is a growing, strong market and gateway for global trade. Direct service from Le Havre to Houston will speed up shipments to this important trade link to enhance supply chain performance and better serve this trade region," said Greg Howard global CEO of CaroTrans.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle.
