How GK Ships Large Machinery

What’s more, we pride ourselves on providing our customers with energy efficient equipment that helps integrate sustainable practices into your business.

Of course, before all those amazing things can happen, General Kinematics’ equipment has to be shipped to your location. If you’re curious to know more about our process for getting your machines from our factory to your site, then read on to learn more about the process.

What’s the Process?

Our documented ISO process enables us to provide the best quality machines on the market. This documentation process also applies to the shipping of our equipment.

Once you’ve ordered your piece of large machinery, General Kinematics’ engineering team designs your unit to fit your exact specifications. A proof of these specs is sent to you for approval. Then, once you’ve signed off on those drawings, our talented manufacturing team gets to work.

After your equipment has been constructed, we put it through a rigorous 20-hour testing process before your machine is prepared for shipping. This quality testing ensures your equipment is ready to work for you.

How Does Your Equipment Arrive at Your Doorstep?
