Global third-party logistics (3PL) services provider BDP International recently announced that it renewed a partnership agreement with Dubai Exports for another 12 months.

“Dubai Exports is a government body through which companies register to conduct trade in the UAE,” said Virendra Sehgal, managing director, BDP International in the Middle East/Gulf Region, in an interview. “A number of these companies approach Dubai Export for logistics solutions.  Accordingly, BDP was selected for two consecutive years as a strategic partner to provide these services.”

BDP officials said that it is one of a small number logistics service providers were approved by Dubai Exports to provide world class, value added services and capabilities to Dubai-based exporters and solidifies BDP as a leading provider of logistics services on the Gulf Region.

What’s more, the company added that the partnership between BDP and Dubai Exports is part of the latter’s strategy to boost exports and re-exports by improving the services offered to partners, according to BDP.

Sehgal explained that renewing this partnership for the second year “strengthens the depth of BDP’s regional portfolio, and creates a conduit for companies seeking value creation and best-in-class practices in the UAE market.”

BDP currently has more than 200 customers in the UAE, and Dubai Export has over 600 entities registered. And it has offices in Doha, Qatar; Abu Dabi in the UAE, and Muscat and Sohar in Oman, as well as partners in other Middle Eastern countries, said Sehgal.

Intermodal units, at 278,767 containers and trailers were up 6.7 percent compared to the same week last year and marks the third best week for intermodal ever recorded based on AAR’s data.

LM Group News Editor Jeff Berman recently conducted a wide-ranging interview with Bobby Harris, President and CEO of non asset-based 3PL BlueGrace Logistics about various aspects of the freight transportation market.

It’s small, but senior brass at YRC Worldwide will take it. After nearly seven years of continuing losses in excess of $2.6 billion, the parent of the nation’s second-largest LTL carrier posted a narrow net profit in the third quarter ended Sept. 30.

As was the case for the second quarter, third quarter earnings results for publicly-traded less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers are again strong. Signs of solid earnings results from carriers that have posted earnings to date include tonnage increases, gains in weight per shipment and average daily shipments, higher yield, and revenue per hundredweight.

While the holiday season is known to bring good tidings and cheer to all, it may also come with another thing that is not so pleasant: higher rate freights. That was the thesis of a commentary written by Mark Montague, industry pricing analyst and chief market-watcher for DAT, a Portland, Ore.-based subsidiary of TransCore.
