Minimising loss in prefabricated steel shipments

Strict adherence to suitable handling, stowage and securing practices may help to reduce the risk of damage and the need for subsequent repair to this type of cargo. Such delays could incur costly delays for a project. 
When loading steel, it’s important to ensure that the cargo is held secure using dunnage and lashings, and that there is no steel-on-steel contact with the deck or sides of the ship. Then there’s cargo compatibility, the direction of stowage, hold ventilation, dew points and the problem of cargo sweat to consider. 
Liberty’s risk engineers have prepared a handy reference for project risk management teams, offering practical guidance on the proper loading, stowage and securing of bundled prefabricated structural steel.
