Interstate Logistics Completes LMI Corporate Headquarters Relocation Project

Logistics Management Institute (LMI) called upon the expertise of Interstate Logistics to relocate their Corporate Headquarters to a newly constructed facility in McLean, Virginia.  The project required Interstate Logistics to orchestrate a demanding schedule that would guarantee LMI to be in place at their new location over the Christmas holiday.

Interstate's processes and procedures were tailored to be flexible and scalable to LMI's specific requirements, which also included coordination with the ongoing construction work within the new LMI facility. Interstate provided services for the packing, relocation and unpacking of contents and equipment for approximately 380 employees, as well as file, storage and copy rooms, audio/visual rooms, GSA-approved security containers and a Library/Resource Center. The main relocation began with the time critical movement of the Security Office and associated classified safes, requiring line-of-site supervision and escorts. In addition to providing move management expertise (full move planning and time sequencing), Interstate Logistics managed the disconnecting and reconnecting of 440 desktop systems.

Project Highlights:

  • Planned and executed the relocation of a 216,000-square-foot office space to a 165,000-square- foot, newly constructed headquarters building.
  • Relocation completed without any damage or punch-out list items.
  • Adjusted to the scalability of the project by providing additional IT support to assist in the transition of IT equipment.
