Taipei-based Dimerco Express Group, a world-leading logistics and freight transportation company, has expanded its US network to Phoenix, Arizona, following the completion of its investment in Phoenix-based BC Logistics.
The move 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+ contract logistics operations.
BC Logistics was founded in 2001 by Vicki Boisjolie and Jeff Carlson and provides global transportation and storage services to customers, 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The company is a woman-owned business and is a member of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council.
Arizona has become a very important logistics hub as its population and business base has grown. 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 climate.
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 from a single source.
