BDP International, a privately owned global logistics and transportation solutions company has announced the acquisition of DJS International, a Dallas-based customs brokerage and freight forwarding company.
DJS provides customized logistics solutions to customers across all modes of transportation. As a specialist in international trade, transportation and customs brokerage services, DJS will be an addition to BDP’s portfolio of logistics and global trade management solutions, with trade compliance and inbound logistics as key focus areas. DJS will operate as a subsidiary of BDP, gaining access to BDP’s global network and portfolio of services.
“The similarities between our two companies are astounding; both built from humble beginnings, family-owned and operated, strong customer relationships, and both expanding in prominence as major global players in the industry,” said Rich Bolte, Chairman & CEO of BDP. “Trade compliance continues to be filled with new complexities and challenges; it’s a major focus area for our customers and therefore it was a natural fit to extend our reach in this area of expertise. We’ve always had a significant presence in the US Gulf region but with DJS we can provide a wider array of specialized and customized solutions for our customers in this new normal world.”
“Our team at DJS is a family, and we pride ourselves on the notion of delivering service excellence to our customers – we adapt and fit to their ever-changing needs in this complex world,” said David Meyer, President and COO of DJS. “We wanted to partner with a company who had similar corporate values rooted in delivering service excellence and look forward to working with our 5000 new BDP family members while leveraging BDP’s technology, visibility, and global presence to continue helping our customers streamline and simplify their supply chains.”
