800 Containers Being Transported from Malaysia to India for Azure Power
ERIE, PENNSYLVANIA, November 2, 2015 – Logistics Plus Inc., a worldwide provider of transportation, logistics and supply chain solutions, announced today that its India division has won a major logistics project for Azure Power. As part of the project, 800 forty-foot high-cube (HQ) containers will be transported from the First Solar manufacturing facility in Malaysia and delivered to Azure Power in India. The end-to-end logistics project will take approximately six months to complete and will provide 140 megawatts (MW) of solar power to the southern region of India.
“We are excited to have been awarded this great opportunity to help Azure Power bring solar energy to India,” said Sundreysh Sarup, Managing Director for Logistics Plus India. “This project is a confirmation of our solar industry expertise and a continuation of our ongoing focus to provide logistics solutions to solar energy companies around the world.”
The new cargo project is one of many that Logistics Plus has handled over the past several years for the solar energy industry. Last year, Logistics Plus worked with another global solar power company on a logistics project to coordinate delivery of three million solar panels to the world’s largest solar panel farm (at the time) in southern California. Earlier this year, Logistics Plus worked on a similar logistics project to manage delivery of solar panels to Central America.
