Case Study – APL Apollo June 2024

Kartarpur Corridor has been one of APL APOLLO’s most prestigious projects, as it is a gateway for pilgrims to visit the Gurudwara Kartarpur Sahib in Pakistan. The project was under the limelight of different international and national media houses as this project has been a stepping stone towards improving ties between the two countries.

The project was scheduled to be inaugurated as per the defined timeline. But 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 the given time frame. The principals to the project – Land Port Authority of India, a part of Ministry of Home Affairs, were approached by APL Apollo along with Creative Group & Shapoorji Pallonji & Co. to get the approval.
The LOI was provided by Shapoorji Pallonji & Co. itself. 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 24th July 2019 & an LOI on the 26th July 2019 to supply structural pipes. APL Apollo started dispatches from the 27th July 2019 and had supplied approximately 500 Tons out of the total requirement of 615 Tons within 7 days of LOI. With APL Apollo Tube’s faster delivery, pan India flexibility on sizes and proximity of plant locations, the company was able to complete the project with great precision.
