Allcargo Logistics, India’s largest end-to-end integrated logistics provider, achieved a rare feat of successfully managing one of the largest over-dimensional cargo (ODC) movements in India by moving a 76-metre long super consignment from L&T Hazira in Gujarat to IOCL Paradip in Odisha.
The Projects & Equipment (P&E) division of Allcargo Logistics showed exemplary commitment and operational efficiency while managing the entire multimodal ODC project cargo movement for its client L&T Hydrocarbon.
The movement of nine super ODC comprising heavy equipment such as glycol field stripper, vacuum effect evaporator and MEG column delivered very efficiently from Manufacturing Yard in Hazira to Project Location in IOCL Paradip.
It was a huge multimodal logistics affair as the mission 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. Overcoming few operational challenges and maneuvering constraints, the team of project logistics professionals at Allcargo Logistics planned and executed the transportation with perfection and utmost safety banking on incisive knowledge and unparalleled multi-modal transport operations efficiency.
“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~Rahul Rai, Business Head of Project & Engineering Division at Allcargo Logistics Limited

Allcargo also pressed into service its advanced equipment and operators to ensure smooth movement of the ODC. While managing the ODC transportation, the Allcargo Logistics team adhered to all the required safety and precaution norms and complied with all guidelines. All those involved on-ground wore masks and used sanitisers and followed social distancing norms.
