warehouse decommission

Nutritional Food Manufacturer

Decommissioning multiple warehouses simultaneously

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.

PeakLogix took on decommissioning multiple warehouses simultaneously across the country for this food manufacturer. 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.


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. Trained Project Managers and subcontractors simplified the project logistics for the client, completing an extremely difficult and time-sensitive task on time and budget.


The project was completed in just 36 days. All 24 locations, totaling 2.2 million square feet, across 17 states were decommissioned ahead of schedule and within budget.
