History of BP Logistics
Continuing with the strategy of growth and geographic diversification, the decision was made to expand the company with a new operation in Panama. In December 2016 , together with a group of Panamanian partners, BP Logistics was established in the economic area of Panama Pacifico . From El Salvador, Blue Logistics would cover the northern triangle of Central America and the Caribbean and, from Panama, BP Logistics would cover Panama and South America.
It opens its doors to its customers on December 1, 2016 with approximately 10 employees in total, receiving the first containers with products on the same date.
In August 2017 celebrates its first year operating in areas of logistics and storage of products, succeeding with its first customers. In September 2017 it inaugurated its new area for the storage of pharmaceutical products with a controlled temperature system.
Blue Logistics and BP Logistics, the Group’s youngest companies, are characterised by the same culture of excellence in customer service, the distinguishing mark of the companies of the Grupo Hilasal.
