Your organization is moving to a new location, or a department is moving internally. You may need temporary storage of furniture, or assistance in emptying out a building before you move in. Gispen can be of service in all these situations. In addition to supplying furniture, we can take care of the entire logistical process.
Coordination and implementation
Companies and governments are constantly evolving. Housing and furnishings need to keep up. Would it not be great to have a partner who not only supplies furniture, but also takes care of the coordination and implementation of the logistical process? Don’t hesitate to contact Gispen for Logistics Management.
What can you expect?
Gispen offers three types of Logistics Management:
- Office furniture relocations: a small department moves to another floor, or the entire organisation moves to another building. Gispen relocates office furniture, but also manages entire project relocations (including IT, archives and personal belongings).
- Storage: a project has passed its deadline, the rooms where furniture is supposed to be allocated are not ready yet, but production is already underway. Gispen can temporarily store your furniture while you sort things out. Our storage solution is flexible in both time and scope.
- Returns and building clearances: the office building you are moving into is full of (old) furniture. Or you have a surplus of furniture. Gispen clears out buildings in a responsible way and takes in any surplus furniture you may have – together we will define which options are best for you and the environment. From reuse to redeployment via Gispen Greenlife (including second-life projects).
What are the benefits?
You can keep track of everything. The delivery of furniture, the relocation of your workstations and/or storage and returns of furniture. We are frequently asked to provide all these services simultaneously within a project. Should you opt for these services, you will be assigned a single point of contact, to whom you can turn with all your questions. Our employees know all our products inside out and know how to handle them correctly. Good to know: we not only relocate workstations, we can also make them fully functional for you – Gispen can install and assemble any workstation on site and provide cable management too, if needed, making every workstation neat and tidy.
How does it work?
ANSWERING YOUR QUESTIONS
We always start by speaking with you in person. One of our salespersons – and project manager in case of a large project – will visit you to discuss the possibilities. Which logistical service(s) do you need? What kind of schedule are we dealing with? How can we provide you with the best possible solution?
You will be presented with a logistics management plan. This plan describes in detail what actions we will be taking for you, as well as when and how they are carried out.
Should you accept our proposal, we will get to work for you. We will ensure your furniture is moved, stored or returned in a professional and careful way. Whenever furniture is returned to Gispen, we will get together and determine which options are still available for the furniture, from reuse to redeployment via Gispen Greenlife. When relocating, we can also take care of the installation and assembly of your workstations, including cable management.
The employee’s thoughts
‘No logistical request is straightforward. Timeframes differ and storage volume varies, moving projects can be small up until vast scale, a returned batch of furniture can include varying numbers of redundant items. Providing a fully-tailored service is what we aim for. Various clients have let us know that they greatly appreciate our flexible attitude. This is what makes it all worth it.’
