Packaging Logistics


Customized transport and packaging concept

Customer Profile

Our customer is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of passenger and freight elevators. The company has a pioneering role as a full-service provider, seamlessly combining system development and production. It includes a wide range of high quality products from single components to complete systems.

Customer Challenge

The packaging and transportation of sensitive and over-sized elevators required a logistics service provider that could offer local know-how, storage facilities and corresponding equipment – a partner that could also offer a global logistics network when implementing individual packaging projects.

The customer’s production site features a large development department that continuously works on optimizing the components in the fields of machine manufacturing, control and drive engineering, and software.

Milestone Solution

Milestone developed a customized logistics concept, enabling pick up from the production site, packaging, and transport of the products within the time given and according to the country-specific regulations.

As a first step our experts inspected the goods on the production site to provide tailor-made packaging.

Thereafter the freight was transported to our logistics facility and held there – ready to be transported globally by air, ocean or road - on time and on budget.

Special Services for the Customer

  • Vendor Management
  • Tailor-made packaging, in accordance with country regulations (IPPC-Standard)
  • Storage space optimization
