CaroTrans, a leading global NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) and ocean freight consolidator, today announces the expansion of its Central American service network and alliance partnerships to meet market demand and strengthen its overall global network.  In Costa Rica and Guatemala, CaroTrans is aligning with Globelink Aeroceano, and in Panama, with Sicarga, both well-respected NVOCCs in the region and part of the GlobeLink network.

CaroTrans works closely with GlobeLink in many markets throughout the world, such as India and Malaysia, and will further bolster its partnerships with regional GlobeLink branches.  CaroTrans is also partnering with the Global Cargo Alliance to further strengthen its worldwide network.

“The Panama Canal expansion has had a positive influence on freight volumes.  Panama is a critical hub for freight moving in the region and offers a unique level of efficiency and streamlined cargo movement.  In addition, we’re seeing an increase in shipments from the Panama hub to the Caribbean Islands due to the devastating hurricanes that passed through there last year,” said Kika Veiga, Latin America Trade Development Director, CaroTrans.  “As we align our service and alliance network to address the growth in U.S.-Central America trade, we’re also working to strategically increase partnerships with larger global networks, to better serve large, global freight forwarder customers that require a unified, synergistic network,” Kika continued.
