Shipping & Logistics Services

Estimating and Pre-Construction Services

Island Cargo Systems specializes in offshore design/build projects in a variety of disciplines. Our horizontal and vertical construction experience – coupled with our sophisticated construction management software – allows us to provide our clients with highly accurate and specialized project cost estimates and schedules.

Purchasing & Procurement

Through the long history of offshore design/build project work in the islands completed by our subsidiary corporation (Coastal Systems Development), Island Cargo Systems has established over 200 direct manufacturer relationships to provide both the information and context to help you maximize purchasing decisions at both project and program levels. Our exclusive relationships with vendors of commonly used building materials – including concrete block, lumber, and Quikrete – enable us to provide our clients with materials at significant cost savings.

Warehousing and Freight Forwarding

Our terminal, equipment yard and warehouse are conveniently located on the Miami River – within a 5 minute drive of Miami International Airport. The terminal spans an area of 3.5 acres with 75,000 square feet of warehousing and 700 linear feet of bulkhead. Our state of the art logistical and construction management software helps us maintain accurate control of goods and materials for complex construction projects - enabling shipment of goods to remote worksites in a phased, methodical manner.

Transportation of Supplies and Equipment

Through our subsidiary Bimini Shipping, we provide delivery of supplies and equipment to the islands via three Ro-Ro (roll-on, roll-off) cargo vessels, which are ideal for inter-island transportation due to their shallow drafts (6 feet). We specialize in charters for construction projects and provide significantly discounted prices for multi-voyage clients.

Total Supply Chain Management

Through our combined construction purchasing, warehousing and shipping capabilities, Island Cargo Systems has the capability to deliver turn-key equipment and supply solutions directly to the islands. We work with our clients to provide seamless logistical solutions that maximize onsite productivity and efficiency.

Project Management

Island Cargo System’s Project Management team manages logistics and implementation of complex engineering, construction and development projects throughout the Caribbean Region. Because of our background in heavy construction and infrastructure projects, we are able to provide a comprehensive range of project management services - from initial project design and conceptualization to the turn-key delivery of completed construction projects.
