Kartarpur Corridor is a very prestigious project, which is a gateway for pilgrims to visit the Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib in Pakistan. The project is under the limelight of different international and national media houses as this project can be a stepping stone towards improving ties between two countries.

The project is scheduled to be inaugurated as per the defined timeline. The contractors of the project were running behind time with their approved vendors for supplying structural pipes & tubes. However, approved vendors were unable to cater to the demand due to shorter lead time.

Creative Group & Shapoorji Pallonji & Co. Pvt. Ltd approached APL Apollo Tubes and requested to supply the required structural pipes & tubes in a given time frame.

The principals to the project – Land Port Authority of India, a part of the Ministry of Home Affairs, were approached by APL Apollo along with Creative Group & Shapoorji Pallonji & Co, to get the approval along with LOI. A presentation was made by APL Apollo to the concerned authorities which highlighted the manufacturing capabilities along with the credentials of the company.

APL Apollo was given a pre-approval on the 24 July, 2019 & an LOI on the 26 July, 2019 to supply structural pipes.

APL Apollo started dispatches from 27 July, 2019 and supplied approximately 500 Tons out of the total requirement of 615 Tons within 7days of LOI.

Conclusion: Faster Delivery, Flexibility on Sizes, Proximity of Plant Locations
