Metro on the move

Lucknow Metro coaches make 2,200km journey smoothly and safely with Allcargo's expert fleet

When the first service of the Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation is flagged off in July 2017, it will be yet another feather in the cap for Allcargo Logistics. Having successfully - and safely - transporting coaches for the Mumbai, Delhi and Cochin Metro rail projects in the past, the Projects team of Allcargo was entrusted with moving the coaches for the Lucknow Metro rail project. Allcargo, with its proven expertise in moving Metro coaches is transporting consignments for the Lucknow project in batches, over a distance of 2,200km from the manufacturing site at BEML factory in Telangana to Lucknow.

Leader for Lucknow

French transportation major Alstom, which has collaborated with BEML to manufacture the coaches under the Make in India initiative, roped in the services of Allcargo, on the basis of its expertise and experience in such operations. "The mandate is to transport a total of 80 coaches over a period of one year. We have already transported four batches of four coaches each and we are glad that not only have we delivered the valuable consignments safely, but also delivered them in good time," says Philip Fernandes, general manager - operations, projects and engineering solutions division of Allcargo Logistics.

Where it would ordinarily take 13 days to transport the oversized consignments over the 2200km distance, Allcargo's team is negotiating the distance in around 10 days, while maintaining its high standards of safety at all times.
