Successful delivery of about 49,000 meters of rail lines for the Bangalore Metro Project


Total Movements was entrusted with the responsibility of transporting 2999 MT of HH Rails from the discharge port to the project site including unloading and stacking at the BMRCL Depot with a notice of less than 7 days. The entire consignment was required to be evacuated from the port on an urgent basis, hence our operations team made all the arrangements at a rapid pace.

These specialized vehicles had to travel a distance of about 350 kilometers (in a single trip) from the port to the site. Our team remained steadfast, continuously tracked the delivery status, returned the vehicles with timely unloading, and safely delivered the entire consignment to the site in just 20 days.

The challenge being the project site located at one of the busiest parts of the city with limitations in no. of vehicles which could ply and remain at the site at a single point of time, our technical and operations team collaborated with the project owner closely to park them at safety before entering the site, maneuver vehicles inside the site for quick unloading and develop practical + customized solutions for stacking the rail pieces 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.
