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.
