That operation began a storied career supplying durable goods throughout the Caribbean for more than 35 years.

Headquartered in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, Source Logistics LLC, a division of Source Consulting LLC, is a global sourcing and logistics company providing procurement and consolidated shipping services to builders, developers and homeowners across the globe including the Caribbean and Central and South America.

Their Miami-based warehousing operation serves as the hub for all materials to be consolidated and exported directly to their clients throughout the Caribbean and the Americas.

Headquartered in Hobe Sound, Florida, Tamarind International Inc. is strategically located to provide shipping services throughout the Caribbean. Tamarind International Inc. is owned and operated by Larry Rogers and will be merged with Source Logistics LLC and will discontinue business operations in July 2018.
