Odyssey opens metals transload facility in Illinois


Odyssey Logistics & Technology Corp. announced yesterday the recent opening of a new metals transload and warehouse facility in Joliet, Ill., which will offer access to BNSF Railway Co.

Located at the CenterPoint Intermodal Center-Joliet, the new 121,680-square-foot facility is operated by Odyssey subsidiary CMI Logistics LLC, according to a company press release.

Access to BNSF is provided through the park's private freight, heavyweight road system. The site also provides access for flatbed motor carriers entering the facility from Interstates 55 and 80.

"We are now in a position to better serve our metals industry clients and increase our throughput by up to 20 percent," said Odyssey President and Chief Executive Officer Bob Shellman. "This is an investment in the future of our business and continues to strengthen our leadership position in providing our clients with innovative solutions to their logistics challenges."

The new facility features 10 docks, three drive-through bays, reinforced slab floors, 16 trailer positions and 6,000 square feet of office space.
