Logistics Plus Inc., a worldwide provider of transportation, logistics and supply chain solutions, reports that its India Division (aka, "LP India") played a major role in coordinating logistics for the successful completion of an important bridge in the Himalayan mountains of northern India between the cities of Sonprayag and Gaurikund. The bridge, constructed across Mandakini River, was completed in the record time of 30 days thanks, in part, to the logistical support LP India provided to the overall construction project.
The previous bridge had washed away twice within the past three years due to unprecedented flooding that began back in 2013. The new, more permanent bridge was sourced and shipped from a New Jersey, USA bridge builder. The bridge parts moved by container ship to Bombay, and then by train to New Delhi, and then by road to Rishikesh on container lorries. Transshipment by smaller trucks was required for the last leg to Sonprayag. In all, it was a mind boggling logistics exercise carried out to military precision by the LP India team.
