Leadership Transition Announcement at International Auto Logistics
International Auto Logistics, LLC, (IAL) wishes to announce the promotion of Rodney A. (Rod) Mallette to Chief Executive Officer of the company, effective immediately. Rod joined IAL in 2014 during IAL’s start-up of GPC III as a General Manager and was later promoted to Vice President. Rod was instrumental in helping IAL perfect and bring its services to the highest standards. In 2017, Rod moved to Vice President for Business Development; in this role Rod was instrumental in successfully developing IAL’s plan and bid for award of GPC IV.
The performance of the GPC IV contract requires the integration of many forms of transportation logistics, including trucking and ocean shipping, customs clearance, and the operation of vehicle processing centers and storage facilities in the United States and around the world, where service personnel and civilian employees turn in their vehicles for shipping or retrieve them for use at their new duty stations. Since joining IAL, Rod has championed efforts related to process improvement with a focus on continually improving the Service Members’ experience when relocating.
Rod is uniquely qualified for this position with his understanding of the military and DOD civilians served by GPC IV, knowledge of USTRANSCOM and inter-relationships within IAL. A career logistician, he served almost 28 years in the U.S. Army and in the sealift, international 3PL and trucking industries prior to his arrival at IAL. He is active within the National Defense Transportation Association (NDTA) and is a member of the Business Advisory Council of East Carolina University’s College of Business. Rod can be reached at Rod.Mallette@ialpov.us, and on his cell at 912.602.5622.
We also express our deep appreciation to Robert L. “Bob” Miller for serving as the interim President and CEO of IAL over the past six months. His leadership during this challenging time was remarkable as he ensured IAL successfully launched the Global POV Contract (GPC) IV while keeping service members and employees safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Bob will continue serving International Auto Processing Inc., as its Vice-Chairman.
