Odyssey Logistics & Technology Corporation announced that its subsidiary Linden Bulk Transportation LLC has recently expanded its bulk transportation footprint in Joliet IL. The new location positions Odyssey to offer its customers additional capacity and services in the greater Chicago and Midwest region.
“Expanding our footprint and adding to our fleet addresses the capacity shortage issue that’s affecting the entire shipping industry,” said Michael Salz, chief operating officer, Linden Bulk Transportation, a subsidiary of Odyssey. “Additional capacity in this area is a huge benefit to our clients and helps increase our productivity by significantly increasing our loaded miles. This also positions us for organic job growth by adding more drivers.”
Strategically located in Joliet, the facility provides easy access to all major roadways and railways throughout the region that feed into national routes. As a part of the expansion, Odyssey is adding new tractors and trailers, as well as relocating current equipment from other regions of the country to supplement the new site.
The Joliet location will be an expansion of Linden’s growing network and will utilize the onsite services of Quala, North America’s largest independent provider of industrial container cleaning services, including tank trailer, ISO Container, railcar, and intermediate bulk container (IBC) cleaning.
