We are family
NEVER BEFORE HAS OUR COMPANY SLOGAN, “ONE PARTNER,
Many Solutions,” meant as much as it does in 2020. We have been on this
journey for 95 years as a family-owned business, and I am pleased to say
that we have assembled a complete suite of brands and solutions for shippers and retailers.
We can tell our story from several starting points, but they all end in
one place: Burris Logistics’ commitment to your needs and our industry.
“How” we do business is at the core of our foundation and always will be.
With every truckload, we deliver deep-rooted values, exceptional service, and a history of creating
long-lasting relationships. Our customers and team members are family to us—this is reflected in
team longevity and incredible expertise. We are pleased to partner with DC VELOCITY to create this
special edition publication. We know “how” we conduct business will remain core to our operations. Through the voices of our peers and industry thought leaders, we believe it’s time to explain
the full scope of “what” the Burris Logistics’ brands can do to solve your supply chain needs.
In 2019, Burris Logistics acquired freight transportation company Trinity Logistics. With this
acquisition, we effectively increased our freight management capabilities tenfold, while welcoming
a family business with similar values to our own. As a widely recognized brand in the industry,
Trinity also brought a colorful culture to our business environment. Our goal of providing a complete solution for shippers and retailers is now fully recognized by the addition of the Trinity brand.
Trinity now joins PRW Plus, Custom, and Honor Foods, providing freight management capabilities to the partners who distribute, store, and fulfill through us. PRW Plus continues to be a scalable
temperature-controlled storage solution. With direct-to-consumer programs we operate out of our
warehouses, we collaborate with a variety of e-commerce partners, providing reliable service and
delivery to the customer’s doorstep. Our Custom division still exemplifies a true partnership model.
Through customized distribution, procurement, and warehousing, we adapt to complex needs and
overcome logistical challenges. Honor Foods remains the critical link in foodservice redistribution.
In the year ahead, our already substantial warehousing capabilities will grow—both in scale and
reach—ensuring that schools, restaurants, and hospitals remain well-serviced with flexible minimums and responsive delivery.
We call this unity of Burris Logistics brands “OneBurris”; what once began as an internal cultural
model is now how our businesses operate daily. While we have four distinct brands, our customers
know that we have a multitude of solutions that can be adapted to serve their unique needs.
I invite you to learn more through the content on the following pages. I also invite you to visit
any of our locations to learn more about our technology, capabilities, and unique culture. Our dock
doors and minds are always open to new opportunities.
