"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!"Tier 1 Automotive Supplier
