Football, chili cook-offs, and brisk mornings….. Fall is in the air and we are rounding the backstretch of 2015. BRT has a lot to be proud of in Q3. In July we hit a record for gross profit and this was a major milestone that required all of us to exhibit extraordinary TEAMWORK!
In 2012 we applied for State economic incentives that were tied to our growth. We promised that we would have an employee count of 70 by the end of 2015. We have hit that goal and are well on our way to exceeding it.
At the beginning of this year we set a 3 year goal of being named a Top 100 3PL by Food Logistics. We hit that goal 2 years early.
We recently participated in Caito Foods annual review in which BRT was highlighted for driving programs that had a massive impact to Caito’s bottom line. Our Caito Team has put a ton of effort this year into building mutual trust with Caito Foods, currently our biggest customer. That effort has secured us the commitment from Caito to manage their entire supply chain (inbound and outbound). This will add to our top line while partnering on initiatives that will save Caito!
We are currently recruiting, adding new technology, and tackling challenges. We will always have challenges or “Issues” in our business….. What separates great companies from mediocre ones is the ability to be honest with ourselves, identify the issue, confront and verbalize the issues and work together to come up with a solution. I can’t think of a better group of people to do that with than the ones here at BRT….. As always, thank you all so very much for everything you continue to do for BRT.
