CaroTrans Launches Door to Port Rate Application

Web-based LTL/LCL rate calculator is latest addition to CaroTrans' suite of e-tools.

Global NVOCC CaroTrans announced a Door-to-Port rate application which calculates a combined transportation cost for LTL (less than truckload) and LCL (less than container load) shipments for specific origin-destination routes.

Users are presented with a variety of route/sailing options allowing them to evaluate and select transportation services based on transit time/destination ETA (estimated time of arrival) and cost, said CaroTrans, a non-vessel-operating common carrier and ocean freight consolidator. Comprehensive costs are computed based on origin and destination locations, cargo pick-up date, number of pieces, weight, and freight volume.

The Door-to-Port Rate application is CaroTrans' latest addition to their suite of e-commerce tools which include: bookings, sailing schedules, LCL/FCL rates, tracking and inland rates.

"We created the Door-to-Port Rate application and the entire suite of e-tools to help our customers boost productivity and operational performance,” said Greg Howard, CaroTrans, Global CEO. “E-commerce tools add value and capabilities that increase time and cost savings for our clients and help them better serve their customers," he added.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
