SDV has announced the creation of SDV Colombia. SDV Colombia joins the South American office network that already includes locations in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Uruguay.

“The Colombian economy is the fourth largest in Latin America and ranks third in population. Citing their recent GDP growth and ongoing economic reforms, we felt this was the opportune time to extend our service network,” says Philippe LORTAL, SDV Regional Director - Hispanic America.

Colombia has the largest coal reserves in Latin America and is second to only Brazil in hydroelectric potential. Since 1986, Colombia exports oil after a discovery 120 miles east of Bogota. Oil and Gas and Mining are two of the largest industry verticals that SDV serves and has an extensive customer list worldwide.

“Our local know-how in the growing South American sectors of Oil & Gas, Mining, Aerospace and Healthcare coupled with our worldwide network will allow us to service companies that are looking for an international logistics partner,” says Philippe LESCURAS, Managing Director of SDV Colombia.

SDV Colombia’s mailing address and local phone number is:

SDV International Logistics SAS
Av. Calle 26 # 68C - 61, office 410
Torre Central Davivienda
(Phone): (+57) 1-427-1093

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
