BDP International Celebrates a Decade of Success in Korea
BDP International (BDP), one of the world’s largest privately owned logistics and transportation companies, today celebrated the tenth anniversary of its operations in the Republic of Korea.
During the last decade, BDP Korea has grown to become one of the company’s strongest Asian units and a key part of its future growth plans.
BDP Korea started with a staff of 14 a decade ago and has grown to a team of 58 today. Its operations have expanded into three major locations, Seoul, Busan and Incheon.
The company serves many of Korea’s leading companies, especially those in the chemical, petrochemical, oil and gas and manufacturing sectors.
“Our Korean business is set for a period of sustained growth in the decade to come,” said Mike Andaloro, Global Chief Operations Officer.
“Korea is one of the world’s most open economies and the Government has a strong commitment to free trade.

With the best trained and motivated staff BDP Korea will be able to offer an unmatched level of customer service.”
