When we dive deep into logistics with companies we work with, we’re conscious of the fact that we’re only one piece of a very large machine.
When it comes to projects such as those in the construction, infrastructure, and transportation sectors, we don’t operate in a bubble. We have to consider the structures, equipment, and people around us, while also coordinating details like timing, routes, laws and regulations, and project specifications.
Below are just a few examples of why and how we deal with project logistics long before we’re on-site and ready to move.
Facilitating Yard Storage, Transport & Deliveries
When projects take weeks, months, or years to complete, receiving, storing, and moving equipment and materials requires planning. Recently, we helped a client building underground subway tracks lay out their yard in a way that would allow for the easy and safe flow of equipment, materials, and personnel. We planned deliveries for specific times to ensure all the materials needed were on site when they needed to be, instead of taking up space in the yard.
Accommodating Safety Regulations
Although we have our own stringent safety protocols, certain projects call for specific regulations to come into effect. In this case, we work with our own safety professionals, as well as other safety consultants and regulating bodies to ensure that every demand for safety is met. Sometimes, this results in creative solutions to ensure we can get the job done without violating safety standards.
