Boxco, Allcargo move first shipment of the IOCL MEG Project at Paradip

Boxco Logistics along with Allcargo Logistics has executed the first shipment of the IOCL MEG Project at Paradip for LTHE (L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering) who were the EPC contractors for IOCL. The shipment had 9 heavy-lift packages

“The shipment arrived at the JMB group’s multi-cargo terminal PICT (Paradip International Cargo Terminal) on October 3, 2020. In spite of the incessant rains and heavy winds, the vessel was docked at PICT,” said the release.

The shipments were received on Boxco’s self-propelled modular trailers. The dimensions of the packages meant that certain modifications were required to be made to PICT which was carried out by Boxco well in advance. In addition, other civil modifications were also carried out en route to the IOCL site.

An approach road had to be compacted and the causeway had to be rectified

An approach road had to be compacted and the causeway had to be rectified. The major challenge in transporting these packages was the route which passed through a live refinery road, which was not strong enough for handling packages of this size.

 

Boxco conducted a number of surveys and meetings with IOCL and LTHE personnel with the intention of finding a solution wherein the modification en route had to be minimised, and the refinery also continued functioning without any shutdowns. This was achieved successfully.

Another challenge for modification in the port itself for taking out these packages

There was another challenge for modification in the port itself for taking out these packages, we convinced the customs and took the permission for breaking the port wall and also made the slope to match the level difference between the port road inside the terminal and the outside road. Boxco made almost 27 major modification en route to deliver this cargo.

A total of 9 packages were shipped on SAL vessel Amoenitas.

This contract also further strengthened the position of PICT as the terminal in Paradip for Heavy lifts and Over dimensional cargo, the terminal has a strategic advantage because of its location. The state of the art infrastructure makes it a terminal of choice for this type of cargo.

The second shipment in January 2021

The second shipment of this project is expected to land again in PICT in January 2021.
