Odyssey Logistics & Technology Is Accepted into American Chemistry Council’s Responsible Care Partnership Program

DANBURY, Conn. – Nov. 7, 2006 – Odyssey Logistics & Technology Corporation, a global logistics and transportation service provider for chemical and process manufacturers, announced today that it has been accepted into the American Chemistry Council’s Responsible Care® Partnership Program. Through this initiative Odyssey will contribute further to the safe handling of chemicals in the industry, and will support its customers’ Responsible Care objectives.

Responsible Care is the American Chemistry Council’s award-winning performance initiative, started in 1988, which has resulted in emissions reductions of 72 percent and a worker safety record that is four and a half times safer than the manufacturing sector as a whole. Widely recognized as one of the largest and most successful performance initiatives advanced by any industry, Responsible Care helps America’s leading chemical companies go above and beyond government standards and openly share their progress with the public.

“We share an exciting opportunity with Odyssey Logistics & Technology Corporation to expand participation in Responsible Care and continue our shared commitment to improving safety, health, environment, and security through responsible practices and transparent stakeholder communications,” said Dr. Carol Henry, ACC’s Vice President for Industry Performance Programs. “Their participation further emphasizes that the business practices of ACC members and Responsible Care Partners are the gold standard for responsible corporate performance.”

As a Responsible Care partner, Odyssey will reinforce its current performance by implementing world-class management practices; working with independent auditors; tracking performance through environmental, health, safety and security measures; and, extending these best practices to business partners throughout the industry. The Responsible Care Partnership Program extends the Responsible Care ethic beyond America’s chemical product makers and throughout their respective value chains: customers, shippers, logistics service providers and others engaged in the business of chemistry.

“Odyssey has a deep appreciation for the necessity that the chemical industry, and its suppliers and service providers, place the highest priority on safety in all aspects of its business,” said Bob Shellman, CEO of Odyssey Logistics & Technology. “We are honored to have been accepted into the esteemed Responsible Care Partnership Program, a move which underscores our own values and also demonstrates an unparalleled commitment to the needs of our customers.”
