PAPERLESS WAREHOUSING
PAPERLESS WAREHOUSING

Our WMS integrates seamlessly with our scanning technologies, so that the data is captured once and becomes immediately available, shared across all systems as necessary.

When changes are communicated instantly, clients and partners can be kept better informed, and managers and staff can be assured that they are making decisions based on accurate, up to date information. With real-time information, planning improves across the supply chain and waste is reduced. These are all factors that are becoming more important for 3PL providers as organisations adopt more frequent delivery cycles, such as the ‘guaranteed next day’ deliveries now commonly offered by consumer websites.

BRI Gets Ready to Take On The US

BR International (BRI) is an Australian company that is rapidly developing a reputation as a leading provider of global supply chain management solutions. The company provides its end-to-end supply chain solutions to a diverse range of organisations, from small businesses to large enterprises.

Established almost 40 years ago, BRI took on a new lease of life in the early 2000s when the company was acquired by current directors, Aaron Poole and Michael Bourne. Still in their thirties, the pair were enthusiastic, ambitious and had an eager eye for opportunity. Both were familiar with BRI and believed there was tremendous potential to grow the business.

In the nine years since, Poole and Bourne have worked constantly to achieve their vision. They have increased BRI’s scope of activity within Australia, embarked on a joint venture within Asia, and expanded their geographic coverage with the establishment of offices in New Zealand, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Holland and China. To keep pace with customer demand, the number of staff has jumped from 14 to 100.

And now, in 2013, BRI is looking for ways to gain a foothold in the lucrative North and South American markets. “Our aspiration is to continue to grow at the rate we’ve been growing,” Poole acknowledges.

Earlier this year, Poole was considering the systems and processes that BRI would need to support its next phase of growth when he realised that something wasn’t quite right.
