Minimising Loss in Pre-fabricated Steel Shipments
This LIU Technical Bulletin has been prepared to be a useful, handy reference for project risk management teams; it advises on the proper loading, stowage and securing of irregular prefabricated structural steel shipped in bundles. Particular problems have recently been experienced with shipments from China.
The main objective of this guide is to provide practical guidance that may help to reduce the risk of actual damage to this type of cargo and the need for subsequent repair before utilization on the project. Damage may be avoided if the cargo is handled, stowed and secured in the appropriate manner.
