Sophisticated project logistics at HARDER logistics – They recently “removed”, as it is called in logistics jargon, 13 mixing units used in the cosmetics industry, each weighing 5 tonnes, from a factory. The challenge: a false ceiling was installed around the mixing units.
They approached the project in three steps.
HARDER installed a hydraulic lifting system on the floor on top and used it to lift the mixing plants to the floor above.
On the upper floor, the mixing plant was placed on its side, as it did not fit through the façade when standing upright.
With the support of their assembly platform, the heavy weights were craned out of the building using a truck-mounted crane.
This spectacular removing of the mixing units was only one part within a factory relocation from Germany to Poland and Spain. The entire project was realized with 12 employees in two phases of 5 weeks each. The freight volume, which also included 3 complete filling lines, comprised 30 truckloads.
