PHILADELPHIA, PA, 18 December 2023 - PSA BDP, a leading global logistics and supply chain solutions provider, has announced the opening of its first office in Lisbon, Portugal, marking a significant step in the company’s commitment to increase its presence in the European market.

Moreover, the well-established road and rail connections from PSA Sines to the main hinterland further boost the efficiency of the supply chain network. The robust infrastructure facilitates the smooth and eco-friendly movement of goods, optimising transit times and reducing cost for clients.  

PSA BDP Portugal will work in tandem with PSA Sines to provide a comprehensive range of services, including but not limited to:  

  • Air Freight  

  • Ocean Freight Forwarding (Full Container Load and Less Than Container Load)  

  • International Road Freight (Full Truckload and Less Than Truckload)  

  • Project & Heavy Lift Transport  

  • Customs & Trade Compliance  

  • Domestic Distribution  

  • 3PL, LLP, and Digital Supply Chain Solutions  

  • Contract Logistics  

The strategic placement of PSA BDP in Lisbon, working collaboratively with the established PSA Sines Container Terminal, enables an integrated approach that combines the strengths of both locations to promote operational efficiency and open new avenues for growth in the dynamic region of Portugal and the Iberian Peninsula.  

"This expansion is a reflection of PSA BDP's dedication to offering the best logistics and supply chain solutions for businesses across Europe," said Yves Letange, Managing Director-Europe, PSA BDP.  "PSA BDP Portugal will strengthen our presence in Europe and enable us to explore further opportunities in other global markets.
