BDP’s expertise in end-to-end supply chain services will complement PSA’s far-reaching network to create new cargo solutions for customers
PSA International, a leading global port group and trusted partner to cargo stakeholders, announced today that it has completed its acquisition of 100% of the shares of BDP International, Inc. (“BDP”), a leading provider of globally integrated supply chain, transportation and logistics solutions, from New York-based private equity firm Greenbriar Equity Group, L.P. This follows the receipt of formal approvals from relevant authorities required by the merger agreement, initially announced in December 2021.
Together, PSA and BDP will extend their logistics ecosystem with solutions that focus on supply chain orchestration and cargo flow optimization. In a climate where end-to-end supply chain visibility and resilience are critical, the acquisition of BDP adds strength and depth to PSA’s logistics and supply chain offerings beyond the port. At the same time, customers of BDP will benefit from additional insights and connectivity to PSA’s global network of deepsea, rail and inland terminals, as well as affiliated businesses in distriparks, warehouses and marine services.
Tan Chong Meng, Group CEO of PSA International, said, “I am pleased to welcome BDP’s over 5,000 talented employees into the PSA family. Leveraging our complementary capabilities and footprints, we envision a future that will bring out the best of both BDP and PSA, unlocking greater value for cargo owners, creating new opportunities for business growth, and enabling fresh innovations for more agile, resilient, and sustainable supply chains.”
Mike Andaloro, Chief Executive Officer and President of BDP International said, “BDP is thrilled to join the PSA team. We look forward to co-authoring the next chapter in our combined growth story.” He continued, “This transformative acquisition presents us with the unique opportunity to re-imagine supply chain solutions by combining the strengths of our asset-light solutions model with PSA’s impressive global infrastructure. We look forward to working alongside the talented team at PSA to innovate new, resilient solutions for our customers.”
