Key Features of Our Automotive Industry Services & Facilities

Services

  • Packaging: We’re quickly becoming the go-to company in Alabama for automotive manufacturers and suppliers that need their parts repackaged for either delivery to the assembly line or to another distribution facility. Our dedicated packaging team pack everything from brake shoes to bumpers.
  • Sequencing: Utilizing our state-of-the-art inventory management system, we’re able to pick, pack, and ship parts in the sequence our customers need them, so when the shipment is unloaded it can be taken directly to the assembly line.
  • 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.
  • Kitting: Our kitting services include picking and packaging parts to support manufacturing operations. Some of our customers use us to receive, store, and remove all the dunnage and corrugate material before shipping. This not only results in higher productivity, but also reduces the waste at your facility.
  • Overflow: When you simply run out of space, we can help by storing some of your parts and raw material, and then delivering them to you on a “Just-in-Time” basis. There’s no commitment of space – use as much or as little as you need. Customers are only charged for the space used each month. 
  • Parts Inspections: With proper training and guidelines, we can provide inventory inspection services and even do light repairs (if required).
  • Procurement: We’re able to the acquire goods and services our customers require.

Warehouse Space

Warehouse space comes at a premium today. When you’re in the business of manufacturing and assembling parts for the automotive industry, the investment and time it takes to manage product, inventory, shipping, tracking, and delivery can be huge. BR Williams has the storage space and have streamlined our facilities to best organize and manage your inventory to save you time and allow you to focus on your core business. Grow your business without having to build or lease additional space!

  • Total Warehouse Space: We have several warehouses in the southeast US with a total of over 2 million square feet of warehouse space to easily accommodate your specific automotive inventory requirements.
  • Inventory Tracking: Our warehouse management system (WMS) can track parts down to the serial number.
  • Inventory Management: Typically, we use a FIFO (first in, first out) inventory stock rotation method, but we can adjust to your preferred stock rotation method (such as by lot number, receipt date, etc).

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!”

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”
