Central Government of India’s dream of transforming Hyderabad into one of the top class cities led to the Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMR) project. Chair person, Dr. Mohanty (IAS) opened the tender for the project. Several Giant players came forward with their innovative ideas and proposals, but it was L&T with their notable illustrations & eminent track record managed to grab the tender.

 

Moving forward, L& T opened a tender to top metro coach manufacturing companies and it was bagged by Hyundai Rotem, Korea and manufactured Metro coaches for HMR. Hyundai Rotem being a group company of Hyundai Motor selected Hyundai Glovis Korea to carry out the transportation from Korea to India and further the Inland transportation to be carried out by Hyundai Glovis India.

 

Though we are pioneers in the field of finished vehicle and container carrying, project cargo is a new opportunity and we embraced it happily.

 

To give a brief introduction, Metro coach ODC’s are one of the most risky of its kind, therefore, safety measures had to be taken as the foremost apprehension for transportation.  Hence, we had to lay down certain guidelines for the same. Months before we received the consignment at Port, we conducted a route survey with the view to find out the hurdles and obstacles that would be critical in the Inland transportation from Chennai to Hyderabad via Vijayawada/ Bangalore.

 

Finally, with a detailed background study and coordination with Rotem we set off for the transportation of the first consignment. Several Procedures and formalities had to be followed such as the Customs Clearance, documentation etc. Apart from these, cooperation of National Highway Authority of India, Govt. of India and several Govt. official of state was highly appreciable. In a transit time of 10 days our mission to unload the Metro coach at the exhibition ground safely was accomplished.
