Industries: Metals

Depending upon the client’s needs, we can provide a customized door-to-door metals transportation solution.

Odyssey provides the full range of services for the metals industry, including:

For intermodal needs, our Picture6transportation professionals can tailor a distribution plan for all types of ferrous and non-ferrous metals products utilizing our proven Load and Roll Pallet (LRP) process (pictured to the right), providing efficient, damage-free transportation into various gateways in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.  We can provide transit times similar to truck with costs that are competitive with rail.

Our additional services include:

  • Advanced Shipping Notices (ASNs) to both shipper and customer with expected ETAs
  • Daily tracking and tracing of each container and shipment
  • Pre-delivery appointment scheduling

We also offer complete supply chain solutions to our customers, including our Stock and Release program and our Pipeline System, a service that allows our customers to ship as little as 5,000 pounds per day to our various transload destinations. This allows our customers to provide a continual flow of material to their consignees, while reducing inventory carrying costs for the shipper.

To ensure material is damage- and defect-free prior to delivery, we provide shipment inspections at our transload facilities.

Our inventory management system can provide real time tracking of customer’s inventory, either through a secure login to our system or integration with customers’ ERP or legacy systems.
