Total Movements recently coordinated the transport of 2,999 tonnes of railway lines for the Bangalore metro project in India.
The company was tasked with moving rails from the discharge port to the project site, including loading, plus stacking at the final depot, on just seven days’ notice.
The complete consignment needed to be moved from the port urgently. Specialised vehicles had to travel 350 km from the port to the jobsite. Total Movements said that it safely delivered the entire consignment in just 20 days.
The main challenge was the project site’s location: a busy part of the city with limitations on the number of vehicles that could call and remain at the site. Total Movements liaised with the project owners to manoeuvre into the site quickly, unload quickly, and stack the rails safely.
“The stacking had to be precise and meticulous to meet the expectations and our past experience of handling this cargo came in handy, ultimately winning the customer’s appreciation,” said the company.
Total Movements is a member of the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) representing India.
