In Ukraine, with the outbreak of hostilities on the part of the Russian Federation, there was a need for the removal of industrial equipment from zones where hostilities were taking place and its further evacuation to safer areas. This process is new for freight transport companies and requires a special approach, as it is associated with many risks, and first of all for the life and health of people. Therefore, the removal of industrial equipment from combat areas must be trusted to reliable logistics companies, whose employees are ready to organize all stages of this process on a turnkey basis. One of the leaders in this area is the Grand Logistics Company, which has been successfully operating in the field of domestic and international cargo transportation since 2007.
How industrial equipment is removed from combat zones
GLC employees have extensive experience in organizing transportation of industrial enterprises, banks, shops, offices, restaurants, medical centers in different regions of Ukraine and abroad. But martial law dictates its own conditions, since all work here must be carried out as quickly as possible, and with unconditional compliance with all safety measures to preserve the life and health of personnel, as well as the property of a commercial or state enterprise.
To do this, you must perform the following steps:
- Dismantle the equipment;
- Pack securely in compliance with all norms and standards;
- Select the right transport and possible delivery options (currently, rail and road transport are mainly used for the removal of industrial equipment);
- Develop the safest routes (main and backup);
- Load industrial equipment;
- Deliver to your destination.
In addition, in order to remove industrial equipment from combat areas for its further transportation to the West of Ukraine, it is necessary to carefully select the timing of all work, in order to ensure safety, to correctly calculate the route so that there is the possibility of refueling or unhindered reloading to another type of transport (for multimodal transportation).
This requires clear interaction between all participants in the process, as well as coordination with local authorities of those areas of the districts to which industrial equipment is being transported from zones under the threat of artillery shelling, missile strikes, aerial bombing and other acts of military aggression from the Russian occupiers.
