The client came to us with the task for unloading optimization. Since the object is situated in the north region, trade rubble is seasonal. That is why the customer had to solve two important problems: the first – reduce the number of staff on unloading, to reduce permanent operating costs. There is no point to hire staff in the dead season, but every time fire and look for new people again wasn’t a good alternative.
The second task was to reduce the time of unloading cycle, to save time for shipping orders in high season. We have developed a project and working documentation, optimized the design of railway racks for discharge. It had two benefits: decreased time for unloading cycle from 45 to 5-10 minutes; and reduced the number of personnel for discharge to 3-4 employees. These solutions helped to cut operating costs.
