Barranquilla, Atlantico – Colombia

In January 2023, Schaefer Group USA took full acquisition of Bulk Maritime Agencies, S.A.S. (BMA Colombia) from Clipper Group Denmark with the intention of adding vessel agency services to our portfolio of shipping companies. Started in 1999, BMA Colombia had a noteworthy and multi-decade long track record of excellence, making its extensive history of quality service a perfect match for our growing organization. And after purchasing 100% of the existing shares, Schaefer Group then further extended its reach into Latin America by directly having a presence in Colombia. Today, thanks in part to this new acquisition, we more effectively manage our Central and South American logistics operations in Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica, Ecuador and Peru. Now called Schaefer BMA, we operate on both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts from our commercial head office in Barranquilla, Colombia with agency offices in Santa Marta, Cartagena, and Buenaventura. And as part of Schaefer Group Latin America, this new addition amplifies our fully-integrated shipping services to include; stevedoring, logistics, trucking, warehousing, chartering, and vessel agency services throughout the region from our main Latin American offices in Mexico, and now Colombia.
