Clark, New Jersey, May 13, 2015 - CaroTrans, a leading global NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) and ocean freight consolidator, today announces a new weekly LCL (less than container load) service from Montreal to Le Havre, France.  This direct service has a 14 day transit.  Freight can originate from as far west as Vancouver with secure handling provided by multiple container freight stations throughout Canada.  The region in and around Montreal, the Quebec province, is a French speaking region with close, historical ties to France and in turn robust trade.
Freight management at origin and destination is supported by a strong team including Odyssey, an established CaroTrans partner in Canada, and CaroTrans’ dedicated Le Havre office.  CaroTrans in Le Havre is positioned to expedite cargo release and on-carriage services.  CaroTrans has an established 5+ year partnership with Odyssey.
“Through expansion of our global service network, we’re adding cost effective, direct service options for customers.  Direct services eliminate transshipment costs and provide greater reliability because there’s less handling and freight moves,” said Greg Howard, CEO of CaroTrans.  Trusted partnerships are important in our business, “that’s why we team up with Odyssey, a first class provider, for services and support between Europe, South America, Australia, New Zealand and the Caribbean.”
Georges Raft, chief operating officer, Odyssey Shipping Ltd. said, “With the addition of this direct service to Le Havre, we’re able to offer an enhanced product that serves all major inland destinations in France including: Bordeaux, Dijon, Fos-sur-Mer, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Nice, Orleans, Orly, Paris, Rouen and Toulouse.  CaroTrans inland network in France provides   dependable door delivery services throughout the region.”
CaroTrans opened its Le Havre office in 2012 to establish a foundation for future growth and support the company’s overall network of global operations.
