AIT Worldwide Logistics Welcomes New Miami Station Manager
In his new position, industry veteran Alex Toledo will apply more than two decades of Latin American logistics experience
ITASCA, ILLINOIS (July 23, 2015) – AIT Worldwide Logistics is pleased to announce the hiring of Alex Toledo as the company’s new station manager in Miami, Florida.
With more than 20 years of experience in the supply chain management industry, Toledo brings a wealth of expertise to his new role. He is especially well-versed in Latin American logistics, having worked in locations throughout Central America, South America and the Caribbean. He has opened offices for other firms in Colombia, Costa Rica, Peru and Puerto Rico and he possesses a broad knowledge of international air, ocean and brokerage operations. Having spent the first seven years of his life in Cuba, Toledo is fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
In his new role, Toledo plans to bolster his office’s international operations with the goal of AIT-Miami becoming the primary gateway to Latin America for the United States and Europe. He will also develop AIT’s Latin American business by strengthening strategic relationships in the region. Another objective is to grow the volume of domestic operations and special services.
Toledo said, “We have a very healthy retail market in south Florida driven by the tourism industry, so there are many opportunities to expand AIT’s Home Delivery and Retail Logistics verticals in this area.”
“My on-boarding has been a positive experience. I like the atmosphere and the high energy level demonstrated by the people at AIT,” he added. “The company has a bright future and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of it.”
Greg Weigel, AIT’s Vice President, Global Operations said, “Alex brings a wealth of LATAM experience in both operations and sales to AIT and he represents another key investment in the development of our international products and services. His knowledge of north-south air and ocean trade lanes is extensive and he has spent several years developing successful solutions for Miami and LATAM regions. We are very pleased to have Alex on the team and anticipate significant expansion under his guidance and leadership.”
Toledo is certified by The International Air Transport Association (IATA) and The International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA). He most recently served as Director of Trade Lanes Air – Latin America for CEVA Logistics.
