Express Global Logistics (EXG), member to the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) in India, completed the movement of a module from a port on the South East coast of India to a nuclear unit site on the extreme Southern end of India on hydraulic axles.
The module with the dimensions of 12 x 5.3 x 5.3 m was transported on 6 hydraulic axles for a distance of more than 700 km. The scope of the project involved port handling and transport of the package.
The height of the package made transportation more challenging, and made it necessary to remove over height obstacles such as signboards, hoardings, traffic fittings and even required multiple shutdowns of electric wires enroute, for which EXG had to take multiple permissions in advance so as to keep the timeline of the movement intact.
In addition to the enroute challenges were the local rail crossings and passages through narrow streets of various villages where managing the local establishments and population along with dense traffic was a critical and time consuming task. EXG’s seasoned team of senior supervisors and traffic managers had to show immense patience, people and time management skills to make the cargo available at the destination site with absolute safety and within the time frame of planned delivery schedule.
