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.
