Plant Relocation
Ford Automotive Presses relocated to Germany

With the exit of Car manufacturing from Australia the manufacturing Presses were sold to other car manufacturers around the globe. In this case we were tasked with developing suitable packaging & shipping solutions from Melbourne through to Germany. The packing list included 36 over sized pieces & 16 x 40’ containers. With 16 of these items exceeding 70 tons it was important that the packaging solution allowed for lifting & lashing points across land & sea transportation. Each item was carefully packaged including protective bags & shrink wrap to minimise moisture content that could damage the sensitive surfaces. Coordinating the lifting & transportation of this many pieces to meet a single vessel required precise planning & execution.
