The Projects & Equipment (P&E) division of Allcargo Logistics achieved a rare feat of successfully managing one of the largest over-dimensional cargo (ODC) movements in India for its client L&T Hydrocarbon.
The 76-metre long super consignment comprising nine super heavy equipment such as glycol field stripper, vacuum effect evaporator and MEG column were delivered from L&T’s manufacturing yard in Hazira of Gujarat to IOCL Paradip in Odisha.
The project transportation was a huge multimodal logistics affair as it involved direct transportation of six packages from L&T factory to Adani Hazira Port by road, vessel voyage from Adani Hazira Port to Paradip Port (PICT) and land transportation from PICT to IOCL Refinery using shore road.
The movement also involved the transportation of three packages from L&T Jetty to Adani Hazira Port by vessel and from PICT to IOCL site by road.
Allcargo also pressed into service its advanced equipment and operators to ensure smooth movement of the ODC.
Overcoming few operational challenges and maneuvering constraints, the team of project logistics professionals at Allcargo planned and executed the transportation with perfection and utmost safety banking on incisive knowledge and unparalleled multimodal transport operations efficiency.
Rahul Rai, Business Head of Project & Engineering Division at Allcargo Logistics said, “There are always inherent challenges involved in the process of moving ODC. In this case, challenges multiplied due to size and shape. However, our P&E team rose to the occasion and demonstrated extraordinary commitment and proficiency to ensure safe and hassle-free multimodal movement, delivering superior customer satisfaction. Our specialised project movement service has set up a benchmark of its own leveraging incomparable expertise and commitment to excellence.”
