About Us


O-T-D Corporation began as an inter-modal provider that, far ahead of its time, offered shipper-to-consignee multiple transportation service on a single bill of lading. In 1972, responding to growing logistical and storage needs of its largest customers, O-T-D began designing and building innovative, high quality aluminum containers and pallets.

In 2003, LM Containers began building collapsible aluminum containers and pallets for the synthetic rubber industry. Recognizing the market potential for these unique products, it consolidated operations with O-T-D Corporation in June 2005. In April 2007, RHINO Pallets of Detroit-Lakes, MN was acquired, allowing LMC to offer yet another product line to its customer base. RHINO produces lightweight aluminum pallets. LM Containers will house all three operations at its current location in Caruthersville, Missouri.
