Signal Hill, CA February 2019: BGI Worldwide Logistics, Inc. has reached a milestone this February, celebrating 20 years of business. The company has grown from the dreams of founders, Bruce Robertson and Gabriel Shweiri, to a company with multiple locations and nearly 40 dedicated professionals.
Discussing the milestone, CEO Gabriel Shweiri, remarked “It gives me great pride in joining BGI employees, customers and business partners in celebrating the company’s anniversary. We have come a long way since the business was started in 1999 and we are very excited about our future as the company continues to thrive in somewhat turbulent times.” BGI readied itself for future growth by completing the custom integration of a new operating platform, CargoWise, to increase productivity, increase efficiencies and provide better visibility of day-to-day operations.
