helping brands grow.
THE ONBOARDING PROCESS
Yup it’s as simple as it sounds, step one is to just say hello and we’ll figure out how we can meet you in person. Coffee maybe, hopefully a bit of sun, and an hour or two with you will give us a good understanding of each other and where to start. We can also talk more about how our pricing works and how to best get you a real accurate quote.
Determine your needs
Your brand is unique so the support you need to build your brand will be custom. We look at your current fulfillment and figure out where NRI can improve your distribution channels. That’s why we don’t have pricing or a crazy quote form on our website.
Your IT needs
Next, you’ll chat one on one with one of our IT professionals who’s an expert in North American fulfillment. You’ll both talk about the best way to get all your IT systems working together so you get a full understanding of your growing business.

At NRI, we’re not just about fulfillment, we offer a wide range of additional services that will add value within your supply chain. We perform a variety of value-added functions including kitting, pre-pack assembly, tagging, labeling, and more.
Looking at your growth.

VERSES Technologies Inc. develops the leading network Operating System and context-aware applications for the next generation in computing, The Spatial Web.
WAYFINDER is a visual routing application that helps our employees within the distribution center (DC) reach new levels of productivity and accuracy.
Built to guide mobile workers safely and efficiently throughout the DC, it provides audio and visual routing and task instructions to associates as they complete their mobile workflows – minimizing steps and maximizing efficiencies. WAYFINDER enables workers to quickly get up to speed, reducing onboarding time, and enabling new hires to rapidly achieve high rates of accuracy and productivity.
Built on VERSES COSM operating system and powered by VERSES spatial networking technology, WAYFINDER leverages Computer Vision and a Spatial Model of the warehouse to direct workers to the exact location in 3D space. This Spatial Model can also be used to coordinate human activity alongside autonomous robots and drones for optimizing various tasks.
CHUCK Robotics by 6 River Systems
6RS is leading the way to faster fulfillment. Fulfillment operators need to scale quickly and cost-effectively to meet growing demand, especially when trying to leverage automation technologies.
Facility and labor constraints are preventing many operators from fulfilling the growing demand for split-case and e-Commerce orders. Meeting this challenge cost-effectively requires a solution that increases productivity quickly and offers the flexibility to deliver lasting value.
Chuck is a collaborative mobile robot. Chuck transforms the productivity of our associates and the flexibility of our operation throughout picking, replenishment, and related tasks. Chuck uses powerful cloud-based software, machine learning, and AI to get smarter and more efficient as it works.
ASPIRE – 3PL Software Suite by NRI
Our proprietary 3PL software suite provides our clients the benefits of a highly customized solution for the apparel, footwear, and accessories industries.
NRI’s decision to utilize a home-grown system instead of an off-the-shelf solution was due to the lack of availability of an existing system that covered all our needs or the unique needs that we see our clients require. Having a system as robust and flexible as Aspire has allowed us to easily handle unique client and internal requirements without the cost, time, and flexibility constraints of an off-the-shelf solution. It has also allowed us to develop a system that is scalable for multiple locations with minimal effort and cost.
Instead of you bending to our requirements, we have a team of programmers ready to work with what you already use. Although some of our partners use the same enterprise resource program, we know that each client has specific needs. We will write custom import, export and interfaces programs for every client. Simply tell us what you need and our IT team will build a custom program to meet your needs.
With our technology, it’s easy to keep track of your order status, inventory levels and shipping information. Through NRI’s secure extranet our clients can login to view real-time information from anywhere, at anytime. If you need information about your account that isn’t available, our IT department can write custom reports on virtually any information we track in our database.
LEAN & 5S WAREHOUSING
The NRI Lean program fosters continuous improvement from the ground up. Our grass-roots problem solving approach enables us to focus on the real opportunities for eliminating process waste, reducing lead times, and improving operational efficiencies. Warehouse employees are truly invested in making a difference for our clients and our bottom line, and it shows by the level of involvement and quality of ideas generated.
FOR EVERY ACCOUNT
Our people are not only experts on your brand, but experts in managing logistics across North America. Your NRI account is assigned to a specific Client Services Coordinator who is responsible for monitoring all areas of your businesses activity.
HOW NRI STARTED
NRI is committed to doing business ethically but also in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. Our approach to corporate responsibility starts at home with our employees.
We support our community wherever possible through charitable donations, volunteer hours from our employees or monetary contributions. We also work to be a positive contributor to social causes and we look for suppliers and clients that are doing the same.
We are also committed to making our business environmentally friendly. Whether that’s using new recycled packing and shipping materials but also by making it a priority to recycle everything we can.
