Making I.T. Happen With Innovative Technology
Fully Integrated Technology with Burris Logistics — We Make IT Happen.
Food logistics technology is not as simple as downloading the latest software update on your chosen device. Our customized technology solutions powered by more than 100 talented team members at Burris Logistics improve our supply chain’s efficiency, boosts profitability and productivity and keeps transparency for our partners crystal clear.
Our customized IT technology places you ahead of the curve by providing transparency for all of the parties involved within our food logistics supply chain process. It ensures partners are alerted as new information becomes pertinent. Our solutions are customized to our partner’s needs providing the detail you need while allowing you to focus on what you do best.
Greg Inns, our Project Manager, said, “Our solutions reflect our commitment to “get like the customer,” which means that we try to figure out what questions they have and why. We then craft our solutions to answer those questions in the most direct way.”
To improve our technology and IT Solutions, we have taken several initiatives this year to serve Our Partners and Team better. We have evolved our Burris Supply Chain Portal to expand our capability for both partners and our operation teams. We have reached more carriers, vendors, and brokerage agents with the implementation of Inbound Appointment Scheduling to our distribution centers (DC’s).
“Internally, we’ve raised the visibility of activity in the yards at several DCs, both in terms of backhauls that are waiting and temporary storage trailers; reduced the effort, and increased the efficiency of our schedulers and receiving administrative staff. We’ve made great strides to strengthen the security of our applications by implementing true multi-factor authentication,” Inns.
Currently, we are working on an initiative to increase the accuracy and communication of the location and predicted arrival times of our shipments. Inns said, “We are planning to invest in technology that will increase efficiency in our e-commerce replenishment and selection processes, which will allow us to scale up and become more accurate with order processing.”
Our customized IT Solutions Technology has eased the manual efforts required to manage complex tasks like inbound appointment scheduling, making the process for our partners and Team more efficient and productive. Logistics Technology transforms the way we manage time and temperature-sensitive products and the way we fulfill the needs of our customers.
