Over Dimensional Cargo loading in progressded on 'Allcargo Susheela'

 

Allcargo’s multi purpose vessel “Allcargo Susheela” successfully loaded 9 pieces of Heavy lift & ODC cargo from Jawaharlal Nehru Port’s shallow berth last week. It is for the first time that an Indian flag vessel has moved multiple heavy lift cargo in one go. Same vessel had earlier carried 2 nos. generators weighing 105 MT each from Mumbai to Cochin. During last few months she was engaged in carrying project cargo in the Persian Gulf. "Susheela" berthed at JNPT on 8th May and loaded all the Heavy lift units ranging in height from 5.5 Mts to 6.1 meters and weighing from 62 MT to 121 MT.


Considering the challenge of multiple cargo, Allcargo’s Shipping team innovated its strategy by undertaking double penetration, first in tandem with two cranes followed by single lift for one of the heavy piece to ensure that entire cargo is loaded and not a single piece is left behind. Thus required space was created within the vessel and all units of ODC were successfully and safely loaded, for movement. This cargo was in addition to other cargo which the vessel loaded at JNPT’s shallow berth. The cargo consignment is destined to BPCL’s Cochin refinery and is scheduled to be discharged at Cochin’s Ernakulam port.

Allcargo Shipping is one of India’s leading coastal shipping and chartering service providers specializing in bulk, break-bulk and project cargo. Its fleet comprises three vessels, Allcargo Laxmi, Allcargo Arathi and Allcargo Susheela. Allcargo shipping services provides shipping services covering all Indian ports and  ports in the sub-continent.

Commenting on the achievement, Capt Ashok Shrivastava Chief Executive Office of Allcargo Shipping said “It’s a proud moment for Allcargo, as we have created a new benchmark within the industry. Coastal Shipping will be the new game changer for India’s logistics especially in project logistics and ODC cargo movement. We will always strive to innovate our expertise to suit our customer’s business needs. For this particular achievement we would like to thank JNPT port officials for being so accommodating and rendering all assistance as well as  Bhavani Shipping who were the shipping agent and were always available to meet our requirements. I would also express my thanks
to M/S M Dinshaw who performed the stevedoring activity”.
