Full warehouse decommission of 2.2 million square feet across 24 sites

The project

The client needed to decommission 24 of its distribution centers, ranging in size from 50,000 to 150,000 sq. ft., across the country in under 45 days. All assets and infrastructure needed to be disassembled and removed from each facility and shipped to the company’s designated storage location. Excess assets needed to be sold or recycled.


The solution

PeakLogix planned and executed the full decommissioning effort at all 24 locations including managing the disassembly, bundling, shipment, and sale of all assets as required. The turnkey solution centered on staffing all 24 sites, including 19 simultaneously, with trained Project Managers and subcontractors.
