GLOBAL EXPERTISE IN FACILITATION OF TECHNOLOGY INVESTMENTS

Regardless of whether you want to break into new sales markets or are expanding abroad for cost-related reasons – there are still great opportunities inherent in an international outlook. Opportunities just waiting to be grasped. But these opportunities also involve huge investment costs in an environment that may be unfamiliar to you. Fortunately CHG-MERIDIAN has a global presence, with more than 23 sites worldwide. As your partner, we know the country-specific conditions and coordinate your investments around the globe.

Optimum risk management for capital spending

As specialists in the leasing of the latest industrial equipment we can, if required, offer customized business concepts that are adapted to your individual order volumes. Our pay-per-use and pay-per-part leasing models are based on your usage patterns and/or your production output. This simplifies cost control, improves capacity management, and minimizes investment risk.

FLEET MANAGEMENT FOR MATERIAL HANDLING VEHICLES

Non-captive expertise for more efficient fleets

Whether you are using pallet trucks, forklifts, or electric-powered tow tractors, we take a detailed look at your material handling vehicles, focusing primarily on optimizing processes and usage.
Taking commercial, technical, procedural, and energy aspects into account, we provide advice on suitable manufacturers and vehicle models. You receive a comprehensive TCO analysis of your fleet to determine the optimum usage.
We also support the optimization of your procurement, administration and waste disposal processes, and the maintenance of your material handling vehicles.

  

Monitoring and control – fleet optimization during operation

Access control, analysis of vehicle usage and driving behavior, automatic damage reports, maintenance planning, and battery monitoring: Installing state-of-the-art sensors makes it possible to optimize a fleet during ongoing operations – regardless of whether the vehicles used are produced by different manufacturers. We provide you with this technology and integrate the data collected into the fleet management plan.

But vehicle-specific data does not just provide the basis for optimizing the size and productivity of the fleet. Using state-of-the-art geofencing and access controls, security can also be significantly improved, and damage that is not due to normal wear and tear is drastically reduced. Automatic damage reports help you to improve your claim settlement process and maintenance cycles. All in all, having CHG-MERIDIAN as a partner will make a substantial contribution to modernizing your fleet and making it more efficient.

Fleet management means lifecycle management

Our customers’ prime concerns are cost benefits and flexibility. In addition to determining the appropriate lifecycle for your material handling vehicles based on the TCO analysis, we also offer you flexibility during the useful life. With vehicle pools and early return options we ensure that you are able to adapt the size of your fleet flexibly to busy and quiet periods.

We also advise you when it becomes necessary to modernize due to digital requirements – e.g. relating to automated guided vehicle systems (AGVs), occupational health and safety issues, or employee satisfaction. And we guarantee a fair and transparent return process including collection and remarketing.
