Building on a relationship formed over the course of many years and companies, the client suggested that Logos were the best team for the job.

Background

NTek and Logos have a long established partnership that allows them to serve markets that would be logistically out of reach for them. Logos understand the challenges faced by NTek and are able to compliment their electronic engineering skills with a deep understanding of the logistical requirements of these high value and sensitive machines.

NTek has a strong and positive relation with Logos Logistics built on a foundation of high quality service delivery and a “right first time” approach. This established relationship meant that the team at NTek knew where to come when they needed to get one of their Nikon steppers to Malaysia. They understood that due to the size and weight of the machine, specialist skills would be required to ensure that it arrived on the other side of the world in first class condition.

Local machine movers would have been a cheaper potential solution, however there was little desire for taking a gamble on an unknown provider.

Logos took control of the relocation at the client facility in Scotland, and the tool would remain under Logos’ care and control until it was finally positioned at the end client’s facility in Malaysia. Using Logos’ experience, sophisticated and proven “Air Flotation” technology, the stepper was “floated” out of the client facility and carefully loaded onto it’s custom designed “floating” base, hermetically sealed in a vapour barrier bag with desiccant. The next stage was to seal the heat treated timber case ready for loading onto specialist Logos supplied “air-ride” transport. When the load was secured and checked by the Logos team, the 7000kg shipment began its journey to the airport en route to Malaysia.

Issues Faced

No issues were faced throughout this project

Results

After a successful install in Malaysia, fully supported by Logos, our relationship with NTek has strengthened and they continue to use our services for their complex logistical requirements.

As of writing this case study, we have booked another 3 projects with NTek and are looking forward to providing them the same high level of service.
