Our Strengths in Heavy Machinery Relocation and Installation

POINT1

High quality, safe transportation and installation

Our experienced, professional team, are able to perform the safe and reliable loading/unloading, transportation and installation of machinery and equipment, no matter the size, shape, or function.
Making full use of our expertise and technical capabilities, developed over many years of operation, we come up with optimal plans for each situation. We offer finely-tuned project management and robust quality, ensuring client satisfaction for the transportation and installation of products, both in Japan and overseas.

POINT2

Technological skills and customer support

By conducting technical skills training, we strive to improve our technical capabilities, constantly adding to our rich expertise. Based on the characteristics of the equipment being transported for installation, we select the most suitable equipment and materials, and after careful consideration of any other relevant factors, we carry out the installation securely and efficiently.
Furthermore, when needed to accommodate a change in the delivery date to the construction site or the production schedule at your factory, we can arrange temporary storage of your shipment by taking advantage of our warehouses in Japan and overseas.

POINT3

Assistance for waste and scrap items

In terms of waste products generated during the equipment installation work, it is necessary to pay attention to the associated disposal costs, the environmental impact, and compliance.
The HTS Group offers customised support for the purchase/disposal of these items. We are able to introduce scrap collection and disposal companies, and offer support to ensure that appropriate action is taken in line with the Waste Disposal and Public Cleaning Law.

Promotion of "safety" and "work quality" education

Since most of the machines and equipment require delicate handling, we believe that safety and quality of work should be a top priority.
At the Hitachi Transport System Group, starting with a thorough understanding of basic on-site operating procedures, our workers are educated by veteran in-house trainers at our skills training facility, where safety and quality of work skills and knowledge are taught to each member of staff. Through skills training, such as correct operation of various types of equipment, and accident prevention training, we constantly pursue higher levels of customer satisfaction.

Temperature and vibration testing

Temperature and vibration testing

In the case of ultra-precision equipment, replacement parts are extremely hard to come by.
Therefore, in order to ensure the equipment's secure transportation, we perform temperature and vibration tests ahead of time at our technical center, allowing us to recommend the best packaging and mode of transportation for the project.

Packaging

Packaging

In terms of packaging, one needs to consider not only the packaging cost, but also things that might impact on the transportation costs, as well as things like ease of unpacking at the destination site and making sure that the items are secured with the appropriate strength for withstanding the effects of transportation.
We draw on our wealth of knowledge and experience to come up with the best packing solutions based on the item's shape, available modes of transport, and local conditions.

Engineering

Engineering

Our team of local staff and Japanese supervisors with abundant knowledge and skills takes full charge of carrying out the work of the highest quality.
