CaroTrans opens Boston office to handle New England freight

CaroTrans International, one of the largest neutral, non-vessel operating common carriers (NVOCCs), has opened its newest branch office, CaroTrans Boston to handle LCL (less-than-container-load) and FCL (full-container-load) freight in the New England market. The office address for the new CaroTrans Boston branch is:

800 West Cummings Park, Suite 3550

Woburn MA 01801

Tel 781-933-6200

Fax 781-933 6220

The CaroTrans Boston offers FCL/LCL Export & Import service.

CaroTrans’ Boston CFS (Container Freight Station) for both LCL export and import is located at Boston Freight Terminals, 329 Northern Ave, Boston, MA 02210.

The Branch Manager of the new operation is Joe Pimentel. Pimentel has been active in the transportation industry for over thirty years. He has been an executive for various New England based NVOs. Pimentel has used his financial acumen to develop industry specific accounting and reporting systems. In recent years, Pimentel has worked with Homeland Security officials to establish industry related security guidelines.

Michael Cheverie, International Accounts Manager; Thomas Swain, Operations Manager, and Robert Simmons, Customer Service Manager, join Pimentel in CaroTrans’ new Boston office.

A graduate of the Massachusetts Maritime Academy, Cheverie has worked as a senior sales representative in the New England market for a major containership operator. He also spent time at sea as a Chief Mate.

Swain, also a graduate of the Massachusetts Maritime Academy, has worked on the NVO operations side of the industry for a number of years. In that capacity, he handled bookings, AES filings with US Customs and other issues associated with container freight movements. Robert Simmons, also a graduate of the Massachusetts Maritime Academy, previously worked as a logistics coordinator for a Fortune 500 company specializing in building material products. He has also been a Maritime Business Instructor at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy.

According to Pimentel, ‘The founding of the new CaroTrans Boston branch grew out of CaroTrans’ corporate belief that a local presence could serve the rising shipping demands of New England importers and exporters.’

In addition to the LCL business, CaroTrans also offer an FCL service that is coordinated, quoted, and booked through the company’s specialized FCL division.

CaroTrans has dedicated branches operating from bases in twelve major US cities, from the western to eastern seaboards. In addition, CaroTrans has more than 24 receiving stations located throughout the West Coast, Midwest, Gulf, North Atlantic, Mid Atlantic, and South Atlantic. The company provides LCL/FCL import and export services between the US and more than 140 countries with 240 ports of discharge.
