Having undertaken significant projects in Asia and Australia, our detailed approach in managing your warehouse relocation or factory relocation project and adherence to our clients deadlines ensures a quality service is delivered with minimal disruption to your business operation.
It is imperative that we invest our time in understanding the exact client requirements prior to the warehouse relocation or factory relocation by undertaking a detailed assessment of the site(s), which includes machinery, storage equipment, materials handling requirements, services, utilities, stock movement, order management, crewing, transportation and special instructions /requirements specific to the business.
Based on our experience, the planning phase of your warehouse relocation or factory relocation is the most critical phase of any relocation project. The planning phase must be undertaken with the highest attention to detail by methodically following a structured process that incorporates all elements of the assessment mentioned above resulting in a project plan which includes, constraints, critical path, milestones and costing.
We find that failure to plan effectively during the planning phase does have an adverse effect on the overall project, especially during the execution phase. Symptoms being: deadlines tend to slip, resource utilisation falls, frustration levels increase and costs escalate out of control because of a failure to plan effectively. As every project will have issues that arise due to unforeseen circumstances, it is important to manage the process and address these issues by identifying various alternatives and making prompt decisions to get the project back on track.
We are proactive in our approach and sometimes resolve these unforeseen issues by paying more to resolve them in order to keep the overall project cost on track. Our communication plan is dynamic as any changes or deviation from the original plan are communicated regularly to all stakeholders, which reinforces their commitment to the original goal. This change management approach cannot be underestimated as it has the potential to have a significant impact on the success of your project, if not managed or executed effectively in a timely manner.
