IAP began its operations in 1953 as Pan Am World Services, Inc. when the company started building and operating America’s first space launch complex base in Cape Canaveral, FL. Since its beginning on the sands of Florida, IAP has merged and acquired with similar businesses until it has arrived on the world stage as a major supplier to military campaigns and to disaster relief programs.
The United States of America has been a constant player on the world stage and must present armies and navies across the globe at a moment’s notice. The U.S. military relies on logistics experts like IAP to have materials, housing, engineering, repair and supplies available immediately. It is necessary for IAP to store and maintain these items and to have them shipped to wherever these supplies and equipment are needed. The inability to deliver needed items could result in the loss of military campaigns and the deaths of countless soldiers and sailors. As long as there are disasters and wars on the planet, there will be the urgent need for companies like IAP to come to the rescue. The efficiency of their operations is critical because, in this case, human lives do hang in the balance.
