Moo friends. The Tropicow is in the thick of cruise ship season and developing the logistics base in Tampa alongside a new marine delivery paradigm that will see him spending more time in the ports.
Tropic Oil and Tropic Transportation are now delivering oil in ports from Jacksonville to Key West as ExxonMobil has expanded our territory. We have necessarily contracted with local neighbor Ryder Corporation to increase our fleet 50% and are realizing efficiencies of scale unknown before.
Growing always creates responsibility cracks and span of control issues, so the Cow has been hustling to stay ahead of emerging issues on both the regulatory and logistic fronts. It is challenging, but very interesting to have 3/4 of the company under bovine supervision.
