BDP Project Logistics targets mining, energy sectors in South America

February 4 - Arndt Droegemueller has joined BDP Project Logistics, a wholly owned subsidiary of global logistics and transportation management firm BDP International, as director of business development for South America.

Based in Colombia, he will be responsible for all of South America, focusing on the mid-market mining and energy sectors.

"We are pleased to be expanding our presence in South America at a time when regional infrastructure and industrial development projects are so abundant," said Luc Van Heygen, BDP Project Logistics managing director for the Americas and Europe. 

"Recognising the increasing role of project logistics there, much of which remains unaffected by the economic crisis, we appointed an experienced professional to spearhead BDP's direct support of our clients operating in South America, in conjunction with our network of offices and exclusive partners."

Arndt Droegemueller brings to his new position more than 15 years of experience handling projects throughout South America and elsewhere, working for leading project logistics companies in Colombia and Peru. He began his career in 1990 with Rohde & Liesenfeld (R&L), Hamburg, Germany. He subsequently moved to South America, where he has worked in project and general management as well as business development for R&L, Kuehne & Nagel and TBS.
