Key Features
of Our Automotive Supply Chain Management

Automotive Logistics Packaging

Automotive Parts Sorting / Break Bulk

Give your receiving department a break! Let us sort and break down your mixed pallets so that when they arrive at your plant, they’re ready to go directly to the line or placed in storage.

Automotive Parts Kitting

Our kitting services include picking and packaging parts to support manufacturing operations.

Tier-1 Automotive Supplier Case Study

“As Director of Logistics for a large automotive concern, logistics issues are normal daily events, but when a container of new machinery arriving at the Port of Mobile was accidentally dumped on the terminal yard, a whole set of unfamiliar problems arrived on my desk. Although I wasn’t an existing customer, the team at BR Williams treated our organization like we may well have been their only customer! With white-glove attention to detail, BR Williams coordinated cranes, assisted with recovery of the damaged goods from port, provided drayage services, trans-loaded and warehoused the damaged goods, hosted the salvage surveyors, trans-loaded the good materials to previously contracted carriers—essentially acted as our 3PL working well beyond normal business hours to help make a bad situation better. They earned my professional respect in just a few short days and can rest assured that they have earned a spot in my book of trusted suppliers of quality logistics services. Kudos!”

Federal Mogul started using BR Williams Trucking services when our Jacksonville plant opened in 1975. When they breached into warehousing in 1994, we became a customer because of their integrity and dependability. I have worked with many logistics companies and I can say that I experience nothing but SUPERIOR SERVICE from the entire team at BR Williams

Mickle, Partner since 1971, Federal Mogul

BR Williams has never missed a shipment or has not had any discrepancies that I am aware of when we send kits to the modification team. The kits are always delivered on time and precisely where they are needed. You have also been very flexible on what is requested of you even at a moment’s notice. You have never failed. As a formerly retired warfighter, I truly appreciate what you do for the soldier. You are a key player in the success of our program that is why we never fail. Again, thank you for what you do and I look forward to doing my yearly inventory already.

US Military Personnel,

What you and your team do is remarkable. I truly enjoy coming down to do our yearly inventory. Your facility is always very well organized and clean in a professional way. I have been to other facilities but none can compare to what you do. Your folks are always on top of things and when you ask them where things are they are able to take you right to where we need to be. This to me says a lot about you and how you run your operation, a true professional!
