With BDP as the majority partner, the new subsidiary company – BDP Global Logistics (India) – will be based in Mumbai but with a presence in all major Indian cities.

“BDP will target India’s expanding chemicals, life-sciences, healthcare, retail, telecom and manufacturing industries,” he explained. “India is a key focus for BDP over the next decade as the nation emerges as a true economic powerhouse.”
