[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]With the blessing of Lord Ganesha, who is believed to be removal of obstacles, Protek was entrusted the responsibility to ship a 13 feet Ganesh Idol to Gujarat Samaj of Atlanta USA. This was one such non regular job’s which was executed by us flawlessly. Gujarat Samaj Atlanta, approached Protek, just around 75 days before the event was loaded with the responsibility of end to end solution. We did not have any specification or the details of what would be going into Shipping the idol. As we started interacting with the trustees of the Samaj at Atlanta, we came across lot of issues which we felt will be a hindrance in shipping the Ganesha from India.
The first the foremost one was they had already sent out the invitation of the event beforehand, so nothing could be postponed & we had to stick to the date based on a reverse calculation method. Moreover, since the idol was of Plaster of Paris again the challenge came up as US does not allow such shipment without getting proper justification on the method of disposal in an environmentally friendly manner, after completion of the event. i.e. How are they going to handle it post the function getting over? We understood the regulator requirements suggested appropriate solutions on what need to be done. We were then left with very few days the greatest challenge came up when Transport Operator’s in India went on a flash strike which continued for more than 10 days.
There was a challenge at every juncture in whatever we tried to do, right from local transport due to strike, booking open top container and adhering to Custom procedure of India and USA. We were facing the obstacles, but a strong belief faith in Lord Ganesha gave us all the strength and guidance to enable us to finally ship the idol. It was half job done at this moment we were continuously monitoring the vessel moment so that we give proper feedback to the organiser of the event at Atlanta.
The vessel sailed through reached Savannah Port in Atlanta around 3 days before the event, we started with most of the regulatory procedure completed it, but again a new challenge came up, it was of the local Haulage to get a flat rack container which could ship the container out of the port and to the destination. The height of the container again proved to be a major obstacle to move it out of the port. We weathered many storms to make it happen, but our determination the blessing of Lord Ganesha was there with us to take it to the final destination. We had to dismantle rework to enable us to load back to the flat rack, this we had to do overnight so as to make it possible for the idol to reach Atlanta on time for the darshan on the day of the event.
All this could only happen because of the blessing of Lord Ganesha the dedication will power of our employees “That we will Make it happen” “This was a Just in Time delivery.
The event was attended by lot of Hindu Community staying in Atlanta also there were couple of Bollywood Actor / Actress who travelled from India to attended this function. We received lot of appreciation accolade across the spectrum for making this happen in USA.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_btn title=”Back” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fjdcs.in%2Fprotek%2Four-projects%2F|||” el_class=”service-blog service-r-blog”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
