BDP INTERNATIONAL OPENS CINCINNATI OFFICE
BDP International, the Philadelphia-based forwarder and customs broker, has opened a full-service office in the Cincinnati area, the company's 24th U.S. office.
The new office will focus on providing import and export services, customs brokerage, cross docking, container stuffing/devanning, warehousing and crating for the chemicals, electronics, consumer goods and machinery industries.
The office, located in Covington, Ky., is 292,000 square feet, including offices and warehousing.
Kay Belser is general manager of the new office. She has more than 20 years of logistics experience, serving as district manager and relationship manager for a number of large global shippers.
BDP is expanding aggressively in domestic markets, while other companies are 'holding a more defensive posture,' said Richard J. Bolte Jr., president of BDP International. The company's sales force has grown by more than 50 percent in the past six months, he added.
