Motion & Control - NSK Case Study

 

June - July 2015

Internation roller bearings and bushings manufacture and distribution

 

Staged warehouse and office move from Scoresby to Dandenong South. The move included the transfer 2,500 pallets and 10,000 boxes of stock while racking system relocated to the new warehouse by the racking contractor. Stock needed to be available for dispatch throughout the move. With destination approx. half the size of origin; a flexible and co-ordinated approach to relocation activities and volumes required by all parties.

Mezzanine Stage 1 – 10,000 boxes to temporary floor location to allow racking relocation.

ABR picked and moved stock from 2 storey mezzanine shelving to temporary floor space. Stock sequentially packed onto 183 ABR stock trolleys and 307 pallets to allow daily despatch/receiving activities while racking relocated by Dexion.

Bulk stock – transfer of 2,500 pallets and warehouse equipment to new warehouse.

Working in conjunction with NSK warehouse operations and Dexion, ABR provided forklift operators at origin and destination to pick/load trucks and unload/re-shelve bulk pallets and place warehouse equipment. Staged over a 3 week period and coordinating with pallet racking relocation and daily warehouse operations at two locations.

Mezzanine Stage 2 – relocation and re-shelving of 10,000 boxes of loose stock.

ABR re-shelved stock over a 3 day period onto reconfigured racking layout with approximately 50% of new shelf locations. Re-sequencing of stock destined for new shelf location. Boxes typically 10-20kgs each with ladder/pedestrian lift required for upper level shelf access.

Office relocation – 30 staff and contents over 1 day period

Computers, desk/office contents and central filing/stationery prepped and moved. Additional to ABR moving boxes, ABR supplied custom file trolleys for super-fast packing of folders and filing with easy access to items throughout. Computers and IT equipment moved in ABR computer trolleys for high levels of protection and fast move with easy staging for the IT team. Two large safes moved using specialist staff and equipment.

Excess furniture and equipment – from office and warehouse.

Dismantle and remove all remaining furniture and equipment, separating into recycling streams. All rubbish removed and floors cleared to make good standard.

“I am pleased to recommend ABR Relocations. Shifting 2500 pallets of bulk stock and 10,000 boxes of stock from our 2 storey mezzanine structure was always going to be logistically challenging when coordinating with another contractor responsible for the disassemble and re-assembly of the existing racking system. With constant questioning from the ABR team, our confidence in their ability to get the job done was justified. Job completed in 15 days. Well done.

    ABR Relocations recently moved our company into new offices and the process was easy, problem-free and within a welcomed (and earlier than expected) timeframe. The staff were professional and friendly, the tapeless boxes were very convenient and overall, the relocation was painless for all staff. Thank you!

    We recently contracted ABR to move our offices from Malvern East to Notting Hill. The price quoted was fair but more importantly the service was very good and the workers were friendly and obliging. ABR has delivered everything they promised and went out of their way to deliver the little extras we forgot. We highly recommend ABR to anyone needing to move.

    I was very impressed with the Tapeless Boxes™ that you use and they certainly are very durable, easy to pack, unpack and move around.They were the most polite & helpful removalists, that I, and others who were on site at the start of the move, have come across. The way in which you moved computers and equipment, and padded the door and stairways was very impressive and I believe with the information you provided us prior to the move enabled it all to go very well.

    We recently had occasion to use ABR Relocations following a relocation of the office. They were impressive from the outset. ABR were more than happy to coordinate the move with not only our staff, but also the company in charge of the fit out of our new office. On the day of the move they were a pleasure to work with and had a "can do" attitude. They also worked over the weekend to ensure that we would have a fresh start in our new office in the next week. Following the move ABR continued to assist us with a number of matters. Overall the whole removal process was made easy by the efficiency of ABR's staff and moving guide. We would not hesitate at all to recommend ABR for any removal needs.

    With a merger there are so many variables and so many things that can go amiss, so many little details that need to be addressed and thought through. We needed a relocation company that covered all these areas and more. You came up trumps! From the very first contact your courteous and co-operative manner and style shone through, to the well thought out move and eventual relocation, your efficiency was second to none.

    Your staff were the most co-operative I have had the pleasure of working with during many relocations undertaken by Tattersalls. The innovative methods employed by your company, certainly contributed to our staff having a minimum of loss of production. No computer equipment or property was damaged during the move, which I am sure was due to your methods. Due to the quality of services, your company has been appointed as Tattersalls’ preferred supplier for any future relocation work.

    I think the most rewarding sight I have seen for a while was on the Monday morning following the first move.Seeing the whole office complex set up as if the occupants had been in residence the previous Friday, and then watching people starting work with intact desks and filing cabinets, phone and computers within half an hour of arriving at work.This is not only a big productivity issue, but also a big morale booster for all the staff involved. Busy, properly motivated people become quite annoyed when they have to perform unproductive tasks.The ABR methods reduced this to an absolute minimum.
