Source Logistics and Tamarind International Merge Procurement and Freight Forwarding Operations
New partnership designed to grow consolidated shipping and procurement services throughout the Caribbean islands
MT. PLEASANT, S.C., July 9, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Source Logistics LLC, a division of Source Consulting LLC of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, and Tamarind International Inc. of Hobe Sound, Florida, announced today a joint venture in which both companies will consolidate all business operations effective July 1, 2018, and operate under Source Logistics LLC. Tamarind International will discontinue business operations.
Tamarind Consolidated Inc. was founded by Larry and Nancy Rogers in 1983 to provide logistics services to Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands, after realizing the logistical challenges of obtaining building materials and everyday household items for their vacation home on the island. Larry and Nancy Rogers were responsible for organizing one of the first regular consolidated container services to Virgin Gorda. That operation began a storied career supplying durable goods throughout the Caribbean for more than 35 years.
I am proud to welcome Larry Rogers, president of Tamarind International Inc., to our executive team. Larry's decades of hands-on logistical experience and unmatched client dedication dovetails perfectly within our long-term growth strategy as the Caribbean continues to rebound from Hurricane Irma and Marie. Larry is well-known, well-liked and a true professional in the shipping business.

This partnership provides over 90 years of combined experience in our executive team alone. It’s the perfect combination of old-school service and a new, efficient way to conduct business and support customers. The fact that our efforts will help in the rebuilding of the Caribbean is extremely gratifying,” says Larry Rogers, president of Tamarind International Inc.
