Tamarind Consolidated, Inc. was founded by Larry and Nancy Rogers in 1983 to provide logistics services to Virgin Gorda, BVI after realizing the logistical challenges of obtaining building materials and everyday household items for their vacation home on the island.

That operation began a storied career supplying durable goods and building materials throughout the Caribbean for more than 35 years.
“My career has been a true labor of love. The fact that I can continue to serve my many clients and personal friends with the incredible platform and support of Source Logistics is a dream come true.
