Odyssey’s proprietary logistics technology allows our clients to see what we see, giving them the process, automation, real-time data and information necessary to make sound, long-range decisions and overcome costly inefficiencies and oversights.

Our proven platform erases the competency gaps associated with thinly or newly staffed departments, and our dedicated teams become virtual extensions of our clients’ logistics operations, freeing in-house resources to be strategically redeployed.

The platform provides global transportation management services across all modes of transport, allowing Odyssey to implement services involving high levels of integration and automation, while connecting the client to a large global logistics network.

Our system interfaces with the client and logistics service providers (LSPs), articulates the key steps of process, and collects and transmits the incremental data. Yet, it is designed to be flexible and can return responses to clients’ inquiries through our browser-based platform.
