March 12 - The U.S. Federal Maritime Commission has granted a license to BDP/Project Logistics LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of BDP International, to operate as an ocean transportation intermediary, providing freight forwarding services for shipments ove

"This license is extremely important since, as a separate legal entity, we could not provide these services without it," explained Luc Van Heygen, managing director, Americas and Europe, BDP/Project Logistics. "As such, it enhances our ability to support our clients' projects."

BDP/Project Logistics offers a complete portfolio of services associated with the movement of project cargo, including road, rail, river, ocean and air transportation and related services to support construction and expansion projects for the power generation, infrastructure, mining, oil and gas, chemical, alternative energy and other industries.

In connection with these services, it will provide end-to-end materials management and tracking, freight consolidation and carrier cost maintenance, logistics process analysis and optimisation, documentation, coordination of cargo inspections, inland transportation and scheduling, and supervision of heavy lifts, and hazardous cargo, port operations, and jobsite unloading and checking.
