When the Danish government recently unveiled its plan to make the country into a maritime hub by the year 2025, it confirmed BDP International was on the right track.
That’s because in early January, we officially opened a brand-new office in Copenhagen to capitalize on the region’s healthy business climate. The office location also allows us to serve clients in Sweden’s southern tip.
The details of Denmark’s maritime hub plans, as noted in Maritime Executive, are exciting and align well with our strategic vision for the overall region:
“The 36 initiatives presented in the Plan for Growth focus on individual challenges as well as general framework conditions. These include initiatives aimed at making Denmark a global frontrunner in autonomous technologies and maritime digitalization as well as creating more work-experience places at sea, increasing the number of applicant admitted to training programs for masters and ship officers, and ensuring the development of an overall maritime marketing strategy.”
While the unveiling of the maritime hub is several years out, customers in the chemical, petrochemical, healthcare, energy, retail and automotive sectors can expect immediate access to our suite of services via the Copenhangen office: ocean and air import and export services, customs clearance, project logistics, ground transport, and warehousing and distribution.
I echo the sentiments shared by BDP Chairman and CEO Richard J. Bolte, Jr., when we first announced our Copenhagen opening:
“As we strengthen our presence at this intersection of two vibrant markets, we plan to implement our full scope of logistics services at a regional and global level.”
