In the first part of our segment on visibility, we reviewed how BDP International brought seamless supply chain integration to an electronics manufacturer looking to streamline their air, ocean, and final-stage trucking transportation. 

This segment will touch upon BDP's solutions for a petrochemical company in the Middle East.

A major petrochemical company in the Middle East had engaged three logistics providers but two of them could not provide global visibility to cover first and second leg (hub) shipments.

It was the intention of the company to replace one of the existing providers with a global logistics company. Their main off-taker (70% of shipments) was an international global shipper of HDPE, LDPE polyethylene (resins) and who was pushing the petrochemical company for shipment visibility.

During the RFI and RFQ technical stages BDP provided live demonstrations of BDP Smart Suite and its management tools to the executive leaders of the petrochemical company, illustrating the full potential of BDP Smart, focusing on the depth of captured information, and the speed which their information could be pulled and analyzed, both in terms of reports and metrics.

BDP also highlighted that the information could be shared with their off-takers, emphasizing that BDP currently managed their major off-takers export business from Europe and U.S.A., utilizing BDP Smart as their global visibility tool.
