OUR CULTURALLY DIVERSE TEAM
OUR FOUNDER, JOHN DEDOLA
“Our goal is for you to be so confident in our ability to deliver your product that you can devote your energy towards the core aspect of your business”
John Dedola founded our company in 1976. Pioneering the industry, he established one of the first companies to operate as an NVOCC (Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier). Mr. Dedola’s extensive background in international retail gave him insight into the needs of importers and exporters. It was from this perspective that Dedola Global Logistics was born. Rather than simply moving freight, the company provided dedicated customer support and a broad range of services to add strength in the customers’ supply chain.
Dedola Global Logistics quickly became a leader in the international transportation industry. As containerized shipping grew, so did our global coverage and service offerings. We continued driving innovation by leveraging new technologies. As a result, we introduced one of the industry’s first online tracking systems.
Marc and Stephen Dedola continue their father’s legacy by serving as CEO and COO. This continuity has allowed us to grow in size and scope without forgetting our founding principles.
