EXG Complete Transportation of Large Absorber in India
18th September 2017
Indian members, Express Global Logistics (EXG) have successfully completed the national transportation of a large absorber from Panvel to Dahej.
The transportation of the absorber was a challenging job, mainly due to the length of the cargo at 39m. A detailed route survey was carried out beforehand by EXG to avoid any problems and solve turning radius issues.
Nandit Dayal at EXG comments; "Our team had to overcome many difficulties during transportation such as an overhang of 10m, the blocking of traffic at various locations such as Kasara and Nashik, having to take the wrong side of the road on Kasara Ghat and a single road from Songir to Ankleshwar."
The absorber was delivered to site within 10 days against the 15-day time period given by the client. A great achievement for the EXG team considering the length of the cargo.
