New direct LCL service from USA to Russia

Carotrans together with Wim Bosman RUS are ready to launch the first and only dedicated LCL consolidation from USA to St Petersburg Russia.

New direct LCL service from USA to Russia

All cargo for St Petersburg will be consolidated via the Jersey gateway and boxes will ship via the Maersk service.  There will be no re-consolidation via any other European Hub. Carotrans will arrange deliveries and consolidation in US whereas Wim Bosman will coordinate the handling and release of the cargo.

The service will start on a fortnightly basis and after the volume is built, the plans are to increase the frequency to weekly within 6 months.

After rate analysis of the competitors (SHIPCO, Vanguard, ECU) , which offer similar service but via EU hub, new direct service rates are proven to be very competitive.
The success in developing this new service will be based on several key elements:

  1. Regular intact service with reliable transit times
  2. No re-handling of cargo via a European gateway ( HAM, RDM or Baltics )
  3. Transparency in local fees ( no hidden charges )
  4. Cargo visibility with tracking capabilities
  5. Efficient cargo release at destination
  6. Neutrality

These are the areas where competitors have failed so Carotrans-Wim Bosman service take the place as the preeminent consolidator ex USA to Russia.   Once the capabilities on the USA-St Petersburg market are proven, next is the launch of the Carotrans service to the trade between Asia and St Petersburg.
