BDP Expands into Morocco
BDP International, a privately held global logistics and transportation services company, is opening an office in Casablanca, Morocco, this month.
The new office is overseen by Country Manager Abderrahim Msaidi, who reports to Fikret Ersoy, BDP’s head of North Africa and Turkey.
“Our customers based in Europe and the United States see Morocco as a safe harbor in North Africa with huge potential for additional business growth, and we recognize that opportunity for expansion,” Ersoy said.
The Casablanca office will offer chemical/petrochemical, healthcare, energy, retail, oil and gas, and automotive industry customers with a wide array of services including: ocean/air export and import; export/import customs clearance; project logistics; ground transport; and warehousing/distribution.
“North Africa is quickly becoming one of the most vital regions for growth in the supply chain world, with a great deal of investment in the expanding infrastructure,” said BDP International’s managing director for Europe Yves Letange. “With BDP’s Casablanca location, we continue our commitment to be bullish with growing BDP’s presence in this part of the globe.”
Casablanca Port is the largest in Morocco, handling about 21.3 million tons of cargo per year.
BDP plans to open an additional Morocco office in Tangiers later this year, providing another haven for growth potential.
Earlier this year, BDP International opened an office in Cairo, Egypt. The Cairo office serves the chemical/petrochemical, healthcare, energy, retail, and automotive sectors with a range of services, including ocean and air export and import, import and export customs clearance, project logistics, ground transport, and warehousing and distribution. In addition to the Cairo location, BDP International also announced plans to open a second Egypt-based office in Alexandria.
