Third Party Logistics Services (3PL) in Alabama & Beyond!
When you rely on BR Williams’ logistics services, you are relying on BR Williams’ total resources.
Freight Logistics Company Serving the USA & Canada
In our Logistics Division, we’re guided by the same principles of the overall organization that we’ve had since beginning in 1958… Honesty, Integrity, Service. We do not operate with a traditional brokerage business model. Most logistics companies advertise loads to as many carriers as possible, and then take the cheapest truck on any given day. We take Logistics to the next level! We build relationships with like-minded carriers to give you the best experience.
Our approach is to target consistent lanes and find 2-4 partner carriers to work with on those lanes. We do this because it encourages consistency in our ability to move loads for our customers, and the rates needed to do it effectively.
