BDP launches project logistics division in Singapore
Philadelphia-based BDP International has launched a new project logistics division in Singapore specifically aimed at luring hard-to-move project cargo.
“Many of these big and complex projects are in the energy and natural resources markets such as the construction, mining, power, oil, natural gas and chemical industries,” the company said in a statement Monday. “And often the projects are located in remote locations in emerging markets such as China, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Africa, Russia and the former CIS countries.”
The company said it has already landed customers, including:
' Transport of heavy equipment for a huge new industrial park located in Leuna, Germany, for chemical giant Quinn Chemicals.
' Logistics and transport for reactors and related equipment from Indonesia to northern Iraq for a U.S.-based power company.
' Logistics planning and transport involving machinery and equipment from Europe, Japan and North America for the construction of a chemical manufacturing plant near Guangzhou, China
BDP Chief Executive Officer Peter Huels said Singapore was chosen as headquarters for the new unit because of its business friendly environment and proximity to emerging markets.
