Odyssey Caribbean’s Jacksonville Consolidation Center is Open

The Jacksonville consolidation center for Caribbean Shipping Services (Odyssey Caribbean), a subsidiary of Odyssey Logistics, has reopened today under limited capacity following Hurricane Ian.

Although the storm remained offshore as it passed Jacksonville, there was a significant amount of water dropped from the storm and associated storm surges. Power loss and damages in the greater Jacksonville area were not nearly as significant as Florida points further south.

Facility and vessel operations are returning slowly and sailing schedules are resuming as early as this weekend.

Operationally, access to empty containers is limited until the ports reopen on Saturday 10/2. Today, Odyssey Caribbean will be loading cargo held through the storm and as soon as operations allow, we will tender these containers tomorrow, and secure more empties in order to meet the revised sailing schedules by each of the ocean providers. We anticipate being able to remain current for all of our inbound and outbound cargo, and to meet each sailing schedule we are planning to utilize in the coming days.
