CaroTrans, a nonvessel operating common carrier and ocean freight consolidator, has created a "Door to Port Rates" application that calculates the combined transportation cost for less-than-truckload (LTL) and less-than-containerload (LCL) shipments on specific origin-destination routes.
The application provides users with a variety of route/sailing options, allowing them to evaluate and select transportation services based on transit time/destination estimated time of arrival and cost. The application calculates the total cost based on origin and destination locations, cargo pickup date, number of pieces, weight, and freight volume. It can also calculate the cost of special cargo, such as hazardous materials.
CaroTrans customers can access Door to Port Rates on the CaroTrans North America homepage.
