Orphee Beinoglou – Athens mover

Aug 08, 2013
With all the world’s FIDI members descending on its town for the conference, Orphee Beinoglou took the opportunity of showing off its new facility in Elefsina.

 

The company moved into the premises in 2009, closing three of its six other warehouses in the city to consolidate operations and moving its old offices in Syngrou Ave., along with its art collection, to the new premises. 

 

The facility is truly outstanding with 3,000m2 of offices (bigger than most moving companies, warehouse), and a 41,000m2 warehouse built on a plot of land that’s twice the size.  The warehouse has 62 (yes sixty-two) loading docks all monitored day and night by 180 CCTV cameras and special fire detection and burglary security systems.  There is also a special temperature and humidity controlled area for artworks and collections.  The warehouse is TAPA FSR Level A certified, the accreditation for high security warehouses.

 

In the peak season there are 200 vehicles loading every day for deliveries in the Attica area: the greater Metropolitan area of Athens. Deliveries take place daily and trucks are loaded early in the morning to avoid traffic.  At the same time the warehouse receives between 3,000-4,000m3 of inbound goods every day.  300 people work on the site.

 

The company says that moving to the new site provided it with the opportunity to be able to rapidly adapt and expand in many ways, especially for big contracts where customers expect large storage areas as well as the synergy of Human Resources.

 

The open day during the conference included food, drinks and a conducted tour around what must be one of the most impressive facilities in the business. The reactions were a cross between awe and envy, but everyone had a great day out.
