BDP International (BDP), a leading privately owned global logistics and transportation solutions company, has announced the acquisition of DJS International (DJS), a Dallas-based Customs brokerage and freight forwarding firm.
DJS provides customised logistics solutions to a diverse group of more than 800 long-tenured customers across all modes of transportation. As a proven leader in international trade, transportation and Customs brokerage services, DJS will readily complement BDPs diverse portfolio of logistics and global trade management solutions, with trade compliance and inbound logistics as key focus areas, informed a release.
The similarities between our two companies are astounding; both built from humble beginnings, family-owned and operated, strong customer relationships, and both expanding in prominence as major global players in the industry, noted BDP Chairman & CEO, Mr Rich Bolte. Trade compliance continues to be filled with new complexities and challenges; its a major focus area for our customers and therefore it was a natural fit to extend our reach in this area of expertise. Weve always had a significant presence in the US Gulf region but with DJS we can provide a wider array of specialised and customised solutions for our customers in this new normal world.
DJS will operate as a subsidiary of BDP, guaranteeing access to BDPs entire global network and portfolio of services. BDP and its partners will reap the benefits of DJSs proven position as a leader in trade management. With this new partnership, BDP and DJS customers can expect a unique service experience backed by a combined century of industry knowhow, expertise and experience.
Our team at DJS is a family, and we pride ourselves on the notion of delivering service excellence to our customers we adapt and fit to their ever-changing needs in this complex world, noted Mr David Meyer, DJS President and Chief Operating Officer. We wanted to partner with a company who had similar corporate values rooted in delivering service excellence and look forward to working with our 5,000 new BDP family members while leveraging BDPs technology, visibility and global presence to continue helping our customers streamline and simplify their supply chains.
