LogoYou may have wondered those heavy generators and machinery weighing about 100 tonnes manufactured at Bharat Heavay Electricals Limited (BHEL), Hyderabad? How they are transportedto different parts of the country? Well, it is the Transport Coroporation of India (TCI), which takes care of the transportation of all BHEL machinery. It was TCI which transported all the security machines and other computerised items on the US ex-President Bill Clinton's visit to Hyderabad. Established in 1958 by Late Mr P.D. Agarwal, TCI has emerged as Asia's foremost surface transport organisation. TCI started its operations in Andhra Pradesh in 1968, by establishing a regional office at Hyderabad.

TCI, which handles over 4 million tons of cargo annually including dimensional, heavy duty and volumetric cargo, operates with a mammoth fleet of over 4000 trucks daily. It owns well-equipped offices and warehouses occupying a total area of 3 million square feet, using state-of-the-art material handling equipment like forklifts, overhead and truck mounted cranes. "TCI has the largest surface transport network covering all the cities and towns across the country. We have 50 branches in Andhra Pradesh. Most of the major branches in A.P. and India are connected through an intranet computer network. This network helps us keep track of cargo at any time," said Bhaiya Sumit Kumar, Regional Officer-Marketing.

Well equipped warehouses"Initially we were engaged in bulk cargo transportaion only. Since 1996, we started Xpress Cargo Services Ltd (XPS), to cater to the needs of small industries and business people who like to send small cargo across the country. XPS is like a courier, with door to door service. All the XPS vehicles have closed enclosures to protect the goods from rain and sun," explained Mr R.S. Kanakasabhapathy, Assistant Vice-President, TCI, who heads the Hyderabad regional office.

XPS has not confined its services to delivering parcels only. In 1999, XPS made its way into homes, reaching ladies with its special 'Anmol Rakhi Offer' on the auspicious occassion of Raksha Bandhan. Under this offer XPS had extended its door-to-door services carrying rakhis in specially handicrafted wooden boxes, along with the traditional tikka and a best wishes card, all at an unbeleivably low cost of only Rs. 100. On the following year, XPS extended this beyond the shores of India. Now sisters in UK, USA, Canada, Singapore and Dubai too have the option of sending Rakhis 'gift wrapped in velvet and wood', simply by placing their orders on ''.

The fleet of Transystem Besides XPS, TCI has several subsidiaries like TCI Seaways, which is engaged in transporting container and bulk cargo from Chennai to the Indian coast of the Andaman and Nicobar islands. TCI Logistics deals in total logistic solutions under the brand name 'Logitra', which is now providing absolute logistic services to TELCO. The latest entity in the list is the Transystem Logistics International Ltd., a joint venture company between TCI and Mitsui & Co. Japan, which is the logistic partner of Toyota Kirloskar Motors Pvt. Ltd.

"Transportation always depends on industrial growth. So, we too depend on industries. Most of the cargo booked or delivered at Hyderabad, mainly consists of industrial products. We transport hybrid seeds to various locations of India, from places like Kurnool, Nandyal, Warangal, Guntur and Nizamabad which is the core area for seed industries," said Mr. Kanakasabhapathy.

"Our brand name is our USP. People come to us for the quality service we offer to them. Our company is committed to excel in every sphere of activity it deals in. Hyderabad region's turnover in the financial year 1999-2000 was 47 crores. In 1996-97, 1997-98 the Hyderabad region was awarded 'The Runners-Up Cup' for perfect Transitment in 'A' category. We got the best performer of the year award in 1998-99," explained Sumit Kumar.

TCI has also recieved the 'Transporter of the Millennium - 2000' award for the outstanding contribution of the company towards development of the industry and the services rendered to All India Motor Transport Congress (AIMTC). TCI's dedicated customer care is reflected in its satisfied client base of 150,000. TCI, which is included in the top 500 Indian Corporates, offers services by a dedicated team of 4000 employees.
