Haiko Lo­gis­tics lifted four num­bers pres­sure ves­sel and skid, over di­men­sional cargo (ODCs), on hy­draulic axles with dou­ble dif­fer­en­tial Volvo puller from Farid­abad to Kandla port which is sched­uled to be ex­ported to Oman. The di­men­sions of each hy­draulic axle is 22400 x 5600 x 5576 mm (length x width x height) and weight of one hy­draulic axle is 1,00,000 kg. Talk­ing about the chal­lenges, the com­pany has faced in the move­ment of ODC, Hari Om Prasad, Re­gional Head­Trans­porta­tion, Haiko Lo­gis­tics listed the fol­low­ing points:

Over height: The height of ship­ment was 5576 mm, to­tal height from ground 6560 mm. The chal­lenges were firstly over­head wires; high ten­sion wires. To over­come this, we took per­mis­sion to shut down all over­head elec­tric wires and high ten­sion wires from the con­cerned elec­tric­ity depart­ment and wire­men were also called to lift the wires up with bam­boo rapped with rub­bers. crane and it was re-equipped af­ter cross­ing of ve­hi­cle.

Width: We moved the ship­ment only in the night to avoid traf­fic jam due to its over width. More­over, it couldn’t go through nar­row rail­ings of the bridges needed to be dis­man­tled and then re­vamped af­ter cross­ing.

A lot of pre­cau­tions by the driver were also taken while driv­ing and turn­ing the ve­hi­cle. We took care that the speed did not ex­ceed 30 to 40 km per hour.

Over length: Turn­ing the ve­hi­cle when it is loaded with over length ma­te­rial was a chal­lenge. Some­time the di­viders (made of con­crete/steel) needed to be de­mol­ished for the ve­hi­cle to turn.
