Avvashya CCI: Supply Chain and Logistics Case Studies | Success Stories


ODC movement from Mumbai to Muscat

The Avvashya CCI team was responsible for the movement of an ODC (a water treatment plant) from Nhava Sheva, Mumbai to Muscat, Oman.
ODC (Over Dimension Cargo) is classed by the ROP as anything wider than 3.5m, higher than 4.8m, extending beyond the front or rear of the Truck/Trailer by more than 1.5m or over 46T in weight.
Due to a recent incident that led to the unfortunate death of an Omani national, PDO imposed stringent new rules for the transportation of any ODC.
Minimum requirements for all ODC movements are listed below:
ODC is expected to move with 2 x 3PL (local) escort vehicles and not just the traditional one
A TEP (Transport Execution Plan) must be produced for all ODC loads
A HEMP (Hazard Effect Management Process)/Risk Assessment is required
A route survey is to be completed
Lifting plans for the ODC loads are to be provided
The Avvashya CCI team assessed all the logistics possibilities for the movement of  the ODC and arranged to bring a path breaking solution by moving the traditionally break bulk cargo in 15x40 FR and 9x40 HQ containers from Nhava Sheva to Muscat.
With support from an associate partner in Oman, ACCI complied with all the requirements and successfully moved the ODC from the Indian supplier to the discharge port and finally to the site, with utmost precision.
