With a fleet of 1000 equipment for all kinds of jobs and over 125 cranes, Allcargo Logistics is at the forefront of the crane rental service in the Indian subcontinent; it is not only providing the machines, but also has the expertise to transport and operate them.

Allcargo: Driving Crane Rental Business

Demand for crane rental services in India is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5% over 2019-2023. Increasing demand for infrastructure development is leading to a proliferation of cranes in the market, along with many other kinds of construction equipment. In such a scenario, Allcargo’s crane rental service is setting a new precedent in the industry.

The company is well equipped to cater to the need of a variety of industries such as wind energy, cement, fertilisers, thermal power, oil refineries, construction of steel metros, etc. Currently, Allcargo owns cranes in all the three segments: crawler mounted with lattice boom, tyre mounted telescopic, and tyre mounted with lattice boom.

The fleet comprises cranes of leading German and American manufacturers such as the Liebherr LR 1750, Liebherr LR 1600-2, Demag CC 2800-1, Demag CC 2400-1, etc. The capacity of the cranes varies right from 35 metric ton to 750 metric ton, thus enabling Allcargo to successfully carry out varied types of projects. A Vehicle Tracking System (VTS) integrated with Google maps allows Allcargo to optimise operations and manage its fleet efficiently.

This evolution is motivated to accommodate the changing consumer demands and help in the manifestation of modern architectural marvels. “With an intention of becoming more technologically sophisticated and assessing the technology, we have set up a dedicated team to monitor the feedback from these devices,” explains Captain Sandeep R Anand, CEO (Projects & Engineering) Allcargo Logistics.

Redefining quality of service
The arsenal of sophisticated equipment is backed by the company’s strong presence across the entire supply chain, making Allcargo an integrated logistics service provider equipped to handle myriad challenges. Allcargo helps clients in the movement of cranes and other construction equipment - a value-added service which most players in the market do not provide. Besides streamlining the transportation of the machinery, Allcargo surveys the site to inspect any shortcomings that can be a potential risk to the safety of the project and the people working on it.

Says Deepak Sangle, Deputy General Manager at Allcargo Logistics, “Safety is the most important activity for AllCargo. Once we inspect the site and are sure about the technical aspects, only then do we submit our proposal.” The company’s Project and Equipments Division has been certified by OHSAS, ISO, and the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) - a testament to the importance of safety at Allcargo.

In fact, Allcargo is focused on achieving a zero incident environment at sites as it aims to incorporate safety in every aspect of its operations. It has formed a dedicated team that also trains and educates the employees of the company on the different aspects of safety to be followed. Consequently, the average training at Allcargo accounts to 1.74 man-days per year, the highest in the sector. Besides this, Allcargo provides expert crane operators who have gone through rigorous training and are more than capable of operating heavy machinery. Post the deployment of crane operators at the site, an expert team of site supervisors monitors and guides the crew each day to prevent any mishap.

Driving India’s infra development
Several industries have chosen to partner with Allcargo in the recent past banking on its extensive expertise in the crane rental and equipment sector. Last year, Vestas Wind Systems installed a 250 MW windmill in Bhuj, Gujarat, with the help of a Terex Demag CC 2800-1 crane. By efficiently handling the project from ‘factory to foundation’, Allcargo helped Vestas set up 65 windmills in the region, reinforcing itself as an industry expert in green energy.

Allcargo once again showcased its prowess in the market when Central Railways, Mumbai, handed the responsibility of dismantling a 104-year old bridge in Kalyan, Maharashtra. Through meticulous planning and swift execution, Allcargo dismantled the bridge in record 5 hours without drastically disrupting the schedule of trains.

Leading cement giant UltraTech Cement also relied on Allcargo’s extensive experience in the industry when setting up a 3.5 million ton per annum (MTPA) plant in Dhar, Madhya Pradesh. Despite the challenges that came along the way, Allcargo successfully erected heavy equipment for setting up the plant within the stipulated time.

Through the quality and safety of its services, Allcargo has established itself as a leader in the crane rental industry in India and has played a pivotal role in transforming the sector. Gradually, through further expansions in the Indian subcontinent, Allcargo plans to position itself as a global player in crane rental markets.
