  • Los Angeles, Chicago and Atlanta to Gothenburg

“Our goal is to provide logistics service providers with the secure, efficient transportation options they require to keep their customers’ supply chains up and running as scheduled.  Direct services reduce handling and add stability so are the optimal transportation choice,” said Greg Howard, CaroTrans, CEO. “It is our pleasure to work with Nordicon, a premier transportation provider in the Nordic region, to deliver this new Atlanta-Gothenburg service.”

“Nordicon and CaroTrans have established a strong and trusted partnership during the last 14 years.

Our new service from Atlanta to Gothenburg is just another step in eliminating transshipment costs and reducing transit times for our customers,” said Linus Ahlm, CEO, Nordicon group.
