Asset-based 3PL promotes Toledo native Rodney Vitek to General Manager of new branch in Toledo, Ohio
Jacksonville, Fla. - Corporate Traffic Logistics, an asset-based third-party logistics provider headquartered in Jacksonville, Fla., announced today the promotion of Rodney Vitek to general manager of the company’s new Toledo, Ohio branch. As general manager, Vitek will lead Corporate Traffic’s expansion into the Midwest and oversee the opening of the new branch. This expansion comes after a year of rapid growth for the company, which increased business by 60 percent in 2018.
Vitek, originally from Toledo, moved to Jacksonville in 2013 to join the Corporate Traffic team as a logistics sales specialist. Over the past six years, Vitek has focused on building strong client relationships and delivering phenomenal customer service, leading to a promotion to manager of operations and logistics solutions. As the company sought new growth opportunities, Vitek’s dedication and ambition inspired both him and Corporate Traffic leadership to expand operations into the Midwest and open a new branch in Toledo.
“At Corporate Traffic, we are always looking for opportunities to grow, serve new customers, and strengthen our presence in new and current markets,” said Chris Cline, president of Corporate Traffic. “As we were seeking to make a move into the Midwest, Rodney became the answer of ‘where’ when he sought to open a new branch in Toledo. Location is everything, and opening a branch in the heart of the Midwest will allow us to further personalize client service and continue to build our trust and credibility across the country.”
The new Toledo branch will join the existing Jacksonville, Florida headquarters and Charlotte, North Carolina branch as part of the company’s growing portfolio. Corporate Traffic plans to hire 20 new employees over the next 12 months to deliver the company’s high level of service to the Midwest, initially focusing on truckload, intermodal and cutting-edge technology services.
For over 25 years, brothers Chris, Chad and Craig Cline have emphasized and incorporated family values into their business model. Corporate Traffic recognizes talent within and ensures employees have a rewarding career path. Vitek is the latest example in Corporate Traffic’s long history of uplifting employees to their fullest potential.
“Corporate Traffic is a family-owned business that’s incredibly family-focused, and I’ve experienced their dedication to employee and customer success firsthand,” said Vitek. “The Clines have given me so many opportunities to grow within the company. Opening the newest Corporate Traffic branch in my hometown of Toledo is a privilege and a dream come true for me and my family.”
Both Vitek and his wife are from Toledo. After the birth of their daughter, the Viteks knew they were ready to move closer to family, and the timing was perfect for Corporate Traffic’s expansion to the Midwest. Outside of work, Vitek enjoys spending time with his family, playing golf, and attending sporting and live music events.
