Our BDP Philadelphia team in front of Independence Hall during Customer Service Week.

An integral part of The BDP Experience is our deeply rooted belief that we — all 5,000 of us — are a global family. We take the extra step and go the extra mile to deliver the best global logistics solutions for our customers. From time to time, we feature the offices from which the BDP Experience emanates, highlighting specialties, key accomplishments, and fun facts.

Today, we'd like to introduce you to BDP's Philadelphia headquarters!

Location: BDP’s global headquarters are located in Old City, Philadelphia. Our 14th-floor conference room boasts incredible views of Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, and Philadelphia’s Constitution Center. We are literally footsteps away from the birthplace of America, and a few mere blocks from where BDP was founded in 1966. 

Office Specialty: We offer the full scope of BDP services to the many accounts which are handled from our location, including but not limited to: import/export facilitation, domestic facilitation, project logistics, regulatory compliance, trade risk management, 4PL, LLP, and more. 

Key Accomplishments: In 2016 we marked BDP’s 50th anniversary and were delighted to have many of our customers join us in this celebration. Our greatest accomplishment is the opportunity to provide service to our customers. 

Favorite Sport: Football - Philadelphia bleeds green for our Eagles!

Why the Office’s Location Matters, Strategically, to BDP and Its Customers: Our office is within close proximity to many of the largest trading ports on the East Coast of the United States. Additionally, the port of Philadelphia continues to expand in conjunction with the major healthcare and life sciences boom in the area, which could put Philadelphia on the map as an even bigger trade port for our customers.

Best Food Options Nearby:  There are numerous options for food near the office, including many great street vendors, Chinatown, Philly’s famous Italian Market (Pat’s and Geno’s cheesesteaks!), and a Philadelphia staple, Wawa. 

Favorite Film: Rocky - of course!

What Makes Philadelphia Special: This location is particularly significant for BDP because it’s the very foundation of our company, where our mission to deliver the best global logistics solutions began, and where we continue to tell the BDP story!
