A logistics service provider announced Thursday it will expand its operations to Charleston to meet a growing demand. Odyssey Logistics and Technology Corporation will acquire International Forwarders Inc., a third party logistics service provider in Charleston. Officials say the company’s new Charleston facility will help increase productivity and help meet a growing demand, as well as provide new jobs in the area.
The announcement was made at the South Carolina State Ports Authority. On hand were the South Carolina Department of Commerce, the City of Charleston, Charleston County and the Charleston Regional Development Alliance. Odyssey Logistics President Bob Shellman says, “As we continue to increase our global customer base, the establishment of new operations in South Carolina offers a strategic location for wider market penetration.”
