SARR Freights ships railway coaches tom India to Africa
SARR Freights, member to the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) in India, recently completed a door-to-door delivery of 12 railway coaches, bogies, and spare parts from India to Africa.
SARR Freights’ scope of work included road transport over a 1500 km stretch, ocean freight forwarding, fabrication of specialised lifting equipment, customs clearance, stevedoring and port handling. The coaches had an overall length between 20 and 25 metres and weighed between 30 and 35 tons each.
Due to the height of the cargo, the route posed various infrastructural issues & blocks. However, SARR worked with Indian authorities to ensure that clear paths were maintained for cargo safety, and the project was completed before projected date.
SARR Freights has worked for various companies in the railway industry before, with prior experience in movement of railway coaches and equipment.
