Heavy Haul and Oversized Loads with Dependable Flatbed Trucking
Gain more efficient access to flexible capacity than with a traditional Asset Based carrier and a more exclusive group of select contract carriers than large 3PLs.
Targeting backhaul carriers and utilizing a steady backhaul pricing strategy allows our team at BR Williams to reach more of the right kind of carriers in a shorter amount of time. This enables us to facilitate a load faster and at a high quality.
Our cost-efficient approach of recruiting carriers needing a load back to the vicinity of their home base, allows us to offer more favorable pricing.
Utilizing new technologies has allowed our customers to feel secure, knowing their shipments will arrive safely and on-time to their destination.
The new technologies that we have added have really helped us offer top-notch Expedited Services. We can now provide GPS tracking, proactive “push” updates, pick and delivery notifications, and much more making the experience better for all involved.

Fortune 300 Shipper,
I’ve been associated with BR Williams the last 3 years since I have come back to shipping. The company is very reliable even though I’ve never met any of the associates in person they make you feel as if you have known them all your life. They go out of their way to accommodate your needs. They update you on any issues that may cause any delays or problems. Very professional in their interactions. Just a pleasure to work with. I would recommend highly to anyone in the shipping business. Thanks for all your help in my needs. Look forward to many continuous years together.
