Managing multiple mining facilities in different, and remote, locations brings new challenges. The logistics of controlling efficient and effective supply between those facilities can be overwhelming for lightly staffed facilities. Which shipping company or freight company should you use? When should you send equipment? Is there sufficient staffing at the destination to receive, configure, and online your equipment? These issues start becoming a headache as mining operations begin to look at hosting outside of their home location, frequently with a freshly hired staff.
Some of the specific challenges that occur have to do with orders that come directly from a manufacturer, like Bitmain. For example, a customer account with Bitmain may dictate that all orders are shipped to your headquarters location, leaving the logistics of supplying your other mining facilities up to you. Do you simply forward them through FedEx? Do you pre-configure and ship via freight? What are your best options, how do you control for double or even triple customs and shipping fees?
