Logistics management is a critical aspect of IT disposal. Many IT asset recovery firms lack the expertise to choose the right strategy or carrier for an individual project. Others approach logistics with a “one size fits all” philosophy by bundling shipping costs in with the recycling cost they quote the customer. This often results in the customer paying way too much for IT disposal services.

Most importantly, few recyclers maintain adequate control over the transportation chain-of-custody, which could result in a security breach if your assets are lost or stolen in transit; or fines and penalties if assets wind up in an unregulated landfill. For these reasons, logistics management must be a core competency of the company you select for IT disposal. CSI offers a diverse fleet of vehicles and a large geographic footprint to provide you with the best asset recovery solution possible.

CSI provide comprehensive logistics management solutions for organisations in a multitude of industries throughout the UK and mainland Europe. We work closely with clients every day on specific projects with an eye toward implementing and coordinating the safest, most cost-effective solution. We have many logistics options available with regards to secure collection of your assets, listed below, but the service doesn’t stop there – take a look at our Asset Management Services and On-Site Data Erasure too.

  • Full Service Shipping

    CSI will send an experienced crew with the proper equipment and materials to safely pack and transport your assets to our nearest processing facility. Even if equipment is scattered on multiple floors throughout a building, or you do not have a loading dock; even if work needs to be performed after regular business hours, or on weekends, CSI can handle any quantity of equipment, from anywhere in the UK and mainland Europe, on minimal notice, and at the lowest possible price.

  • Dock-to-Dock

    If your organisation has a loading dock, and your personnel can stack the equipment on standard 4×4 pallets and securely shrink-wrap it for pickup, CSI will arrange for transportation to our nearest processing facility via one of our preferred common carriers at a greatly reduced price versus full service. CSI will provide your personnel with packing instructions to ensure your equipment travels safe and secure.

  • Drop-off / Self-Ship

    Clients can ship palletised equipment to CSI’s nearest processing facility via their own company trucks, or via the common carrier of their choice, at no additional charge from CSI.

  • Small Package

    For smaller items up to 25kg, clients can pack and ship equipment directly to CSI’s nearest processing facility, via small package carrier of their choice (UPS, FedEx, DPD, etc.), at no additional charge from CSI.

  • Custom Project Management

    CSI is well experienced in managing large scale clean-outs and decommissioning projects that require multi-man crews or multiple work days to accomplish the work. We can arrange for specialised moving equipment to handle server room equipment or telecommunications gear safely, and within your time constraints.

Regardless of your location, quantity of equipment or site requirements, CSI can tailor a logistics solution that meets your requirements.
