Photo of the month – February 2002

Figure 1

"Little" bump, big effect:

Aluminium sheet (worth USD 186,000) strapped together into packages was loaded and transported on an articulated flat freight car with gaps between the packages and without being secured. The first switching impact was enough to make all the packages slip. The packaging of wooden skids and steel strapping could not withstand the strain, resulting in the majority of the sheets being damaged.

The Steel sheet in sheets, Steel sheet in coils, Profiles, Pipes and Wire rod product pages provide information about safe transport of metal and steel products.
