Description: The Swedish Club recently launched a cargo advice Guide, focusing on Steel cargoes shipments.
Steel shipments typically involve substantial tonnages, with steel products often the sole cargo on the voyage.
Steel shipments can involve many product types on the same voyage and may load from more than one port.
All steel will rust in the presence of water. Sea water wetting is particularly damaging with a rate of steel oxidation
some 10 times higher than from fresh water alone.
There is no schedule for steel coils in the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes (IMSBC) Code. Claims arising
from the shipment of steel coils tend to be significant and therefore great care has to be taken to ensure that
the condition of the loaded product is scrutinised and meticulously recorded and that all coils are stowed in
an acceptable manner. It is vital that comprehensive records and high-quality photographs at each stage of the
operations/journey, with date and time, are maintained.


Guidelines for the shipment of Steel cargoes:
1. Pre-loading
2. During loading
3. During voyage
4. During discharge
5. Risks associated with carriage
