Transportation of Devices Logistics service provider delivers high-tech devices worldwide
High-tech medical equipment such as magnetic resonance tomographs are not only highly sensitive but also very heavy. Logistics service provider Hans Geis GmbH now offers, in addition to transportation and storage, installation of such devices in doctor’s offices and hospitals.

Fifteen Geis employees have been trained specifically to provide this service. “We have made hefty investments for this,” says Klaus Stäblein, company CEO and the executive responsible for the new division Road Services Deutschland. “Four brand-new heavy-goods trains with air suspension and 3-tonne lifting platforms, combined with 10 insulated and partially heatable removable caissons with Edscha canopy and a special securing system on the floor, are being deployed during this project.”
Interim storage possible
Using this equipment, Geis employees transport magnetic resonance tomographs (MRTs) and other medical systems directly to their point of use, or they temporarily store the devices if deadlines have to be moved. During deployment on-site, the Geis team seals off roads, organises cranes and prepares paths inside and outside the building. The equipment delivery itself is meticulous work involving millimetre precision: “spilling” an MRT worth several million euros must absolutely be avoided.
Complete service packages comprising transportation, delivery at the facility and on-site assembly are offered by the Geis group to customers throughout Europe. “Recently, for example, we delivered and installed a tomograph for a hospital in the Bulgarian capital Sofia,” says Andreas Schlenz. “And a team of technicians has just recently returned from Beijing. In that case, although we didn’t handle the transportation, we did take over for the assembly and installation of a system.”
