Founded in 1925, Mallory Alexander International Logistics is a fourth-generation company with more than 500 employees and operations throughout the United States.
Originally called Memphis Compress and Storage Company, the operation met the storage and handling needs of area cotton merchants and producers. The company diversified to serve more industries in the 1960s by establishing a warehouse to store and handle general merchandise and expanding its services to provide local truck delivery.
In the 1970s, the company entered the contract warehousing business and acquired an established international freight forwarder specializing in air and ocean shipping. The firm continued to add state-of-the-art services, including customs brokerage and domestic air freight.
|“Cotton was the foundation of this city’s economy and it was the foundation of our business,” says W. Neely Mallory III, President of The Mallory Group. “But, like Memphis, we’ve entered the new, high speed, global economy. We also believe businesses grow for two primary reasons: satisfied customers who are served at competitive and reasonable prices—prices that let the efficient make a profit—and the people—not the buildings, lift trucks and computers—who make it happen.”
