Shipment to the launch site

With the fit checks successfully completed, and integration of all the satellites into QuadPacks done, we had reached the point of packing and shipping all the satellites to the Launch Site. So we gathered all the QuadPacks and associated interface hardware and started packing.

With all clearances arranged, the shipment could leave to India for inland transportation to the launch site:
