The cargo weighed a total 190 MT with dimensions of 20 x 6.9 x 5.9 (m), and was moved from Yamuna Nagar in Haryana to Kandla Port, covering a distance of 1600 km.
EXG’s asset management, heavy hauling, and engineering teams coordinated to create detailed plans in advance and did route survey to plan for the movement of the cargo.
The logistics team at EXG faced several challenges like the ongoing infrastructure developments in the area, acquiring permissions from various authorities and numerous civil works en route to facilitate the cargo movement, ending with the safe delivery of the cargo.
Due to the height of the package, it became difficult to pass under electrical pole wires, road cameras, toll plaza, and signboards. To overcome these obstacles, power shutdown permissions were granted, signboards were removed and a bypass path was created by civil workers so the package could make its way through the entire route without risk.
Keeping the width of the package in mind, dividers had to be removed, especially at Karnal. The vigorous efforts of the EXG team and multiple follow-ups led to acquiring permission from NHAI to remove and reset the dividers.
Narrow roads were another major challenge, trimming and cutting tree branches was mandatory to avoid damage to the cargo, and permissions was granted from the authorities to do so. The EXG team had to convince locals to co-operate and to put the traffic flow of local vehicles on hold so that the cargo could pass through these narrow roads.
"EXG did not falter on its commitment and transported the cargo in close coordination with our client and stakeholders. EXG is proud to have kept its timelines."
