After its dramatic foray into ship owning, Allcargo Logistics Ltd, an integrated logistics solutions provider, commissioned last week its Allcargo Logistics Park which it set up jointly with the state-owned Container Corporation of India. This advanced Inland Container Depot (ICD) strategically located in UP, North India is set to ramp up Allcargo’s worldwide operations in a big way.

Allcargo, a leading player in the global LCL (less-than container load) consolidation market, had recently acquired two vessels of 6,500 DWT each. Flush with break bulk cargo the company has plans to increase its presence on the Indian coast and is looking at acquiring around five vessels to also handle bulk and project cargo  

The new ICD offers matchless facilities and infrastructure with a 41,264 square meter built up area, 21,000 square meters paved yard and 5,160 square meter covered warehouse. In addition, the facility has a 75,000 TEU handling capacity per annum apart from providing superior quality, ultra-modern amenities like three reach stackers each with 45 tonne loading capacity, six forklifts with 10 tonne to 3 tonne handling capacities, 100 tonne electronic weighbridge and two high-mast lighting columns.

Shashi Kiran Shetty, Chairman & Managing Director, Allcargo Logistics Limited said, “Logistics has become a critical component for economic success in today’s global scenario and we are pleased to partner with a renowned company like Container Corporation of India to cater to the growing requirement of integrated logistics services of manufacturers and traders for efficient supply chain management through this facility.”

The new ICD will ensure smooth movement of containers through efficient deployment of cargo handling equipment and reliable warehousing processes. Additionally, the customer service desk supported by IT enabled documentation and billing procedures streamlines and simplifies administrative formalities. The facility also offers an automated shipment status thereby providing complete visibility and costing transparency of every move to the customer.

 

Allcargo has presence in high-traffic ports, established relationship with major shipping lines and expanding footprint through inland container depots (ICD). The company owns and operates three CFSs in leading ports viz. JNPT, Mumbai; Chennai and Mundra; and one ICD at Pithampura, Indore, Madhya Pradesh, and two warehouses at Verna, Goa and Bhivandi, Mumbai.

The company, through its wholly owned subsidiary, ECU Line, also has a strong presence in Europe, Latin America and Africa. Pioneers of the LCL consolidation business within India, Allcargo, today delivers and receives cargo from over 5000 locations worldwide.

 

Allcargo had only recently acquired two Hong Kong-based companies engaged in non-vessel owning common carrier business to expand its presence in China and its plans further acquisitions in the fast-growing markets of India and East Asia.

Promoted by Mr. Shashi Kiran Shetty, Allcargo has established steady growth, overcoming stiff competition and challenges to emerge as a icon in the global logistics industry. The company currently operates out of 140 own offices in 59 countries and gets support by an even larger network of franchisee offices across the world.
