Taiwan-based logistics company, Dimerco, has expanded its US network following the completion of its investment in BC Logistics which operates in Phoenix.
The new joint venture is the latest in Dimerco’s continuing expansion of its US freight forwarding network, which now includes 19 offices in major markets, coast to coast. Globally, Dimerco has 166 company-owned forwarding offices in 17 countries, supplemented by 200 partner agents and 80-plus contract logistics operations.
Founded in 2001, BC Logistics has provided global and domestic transportation services for companies in the semiconductor, power/energy, healthcare, and other industries requiring time-critical, service sensitive shipments. The new joint venture will supplement BC Logistics’ local market knowledge and transportation expertise with Dimerco’s global capabilities to provide customers with worldwide logistics solutions from a single source.
“Arizona has become a very important logistics hub as its population and business base has grown,” said Dimerco. “Phoenix is now the fifth-largest city in the US and Arizona has become an epicentre for technology manufacturing in the Southwest, with corporations attracted by the state’s business-friendly tax structure, knowledge-based workforce, and favorable weather.
“BC Logistics will capitalise on this growth to expand business across a wide range of services, including air and ocean freight, domestic air and ground, logistics planning, warehousing, crating and package, asset recovery/white glove services, and time-definite courier service.”
