Challenges & Execution

Our team executed this multimodal transportation project with detailed & accurate planning considering all parameters on-road as well as on sea with regards to the package stability & route feasibility.

The general cargo was loaded on semi-lowbed trailers & was smoothly moved by road to Mumbai Port without any interruption. The 3 ODCs were placed on a suitable number of Hydraulic axles based on the cargo dimension. The cargo was then lashed keeping the safety of the ODC in mind & moved out from Godrej Dahej Plant. Our team carried out the execution with proper coordination from Godrej Plant to Adani RORO Jetty.

All 3 ODCs were brought to Mumbai Port within the given transit time. Our team closely liaised with the vessel crew for the safe handling of the cargo during loading & unloading.
