Allcargo Logistics teams in various divisions are showing an exemplary commitment to serving the nation during the COVID-19-induced nationwide lockdown.
Team members of the projects and equipment division, Mumbai CFS, Mundra CFS, Chennai CFS, ONGC shore-based operations, and crane site locations have been working tirelessly. Defying all challenges and uncertainties, the teams just like the frontline warriors are serving the logistics requirements of customers, with undertaking necessary precautions and permissions.
The project and equipment teams at the frontlines are bravely fighting the odds and moving ahead and delivering project cargo to the destinations. The teams are in progress to successfully manage and move refinery vessel products, stator and rotors, break-bulk shipments and more for some of the biggest market leaders in the industry.
“While ports and port operations have been exempted from the lockdown as they fall under the essential services, the circumstances have posed a lot of operational challenges for logistics players like us to continue operations as planned. As the lockdown was the need of the hour to contain the spread of COVID-19, our teams rose to the occasion with resilience and intent to defeat the challenges. They have been continuously operating throughout the lockdown period by cautiously practicing hygiene and necessary social distancing among other precautions,” Allcargo Logistics Joint Managing Director Adarsh Hegde said.
At the Mumbai CFS, the Allcargo team is ensuring that all the equipment deployed at the CFS are up and running. The team makes necessary arrangements for crew movement, accommodation, food, etc. Similarly, the trailers’ operations team is efficiently managing the fleet to maintain 80% trailer fleet utilisation. The team at ONGC shore-based operations put in place enhanced safety measures to safeguard the health of the personnel employed at the site. Allcargo’s shore-based team also offers amenities for staff deployed at Mumbai CFS and NSICT Port operations.
The Mundra CFS team has been efficiently managing the incoming cargo volume. The maintenance team is ensuring all the equipment is up and running, reducing the breakdowns to a minimum.
The team at Chennai CFS is extending all the comfort to the crew to help them work efficiently. Furthermore, the employees at the crane site locations decided to stay put at the worksites to manage and look after the cranes. Because of that, the cranes managed to resume work soon after the relaxation announced by the Government on certain infra segments.
“We are proud of our team members for their commitment and call them our COVID-19 Warriors. We are also deeply grateful and acknowledge the key roles of all other COVID-19 warriors that include port and customs officials, doctors and hospital staff, police, local panchayats and administrative authorities, for their unstinted help in keeping our operations and our country’s essential services running, much as we thank our customers for their support in this time of crisis,” Hedge added.
With the lockdown slowly easing in different parts of the country, Allcargo teams are geared up to keep up their determination and effort to offer ingenious logistics solutions to customers.
