Whenever necessary, Fortune Steel is taking care of transportation from the steel mills to the ports. This can take place by barges, trains or trucks. Fortune Steel is trying to protect the material as much as possible against damage of transportation.
Usually conventional vessels are used for the ocean transportation of steel. However, more and more we see the trend that steel will be shipped by container vessels as well. Fortune Steel has vast experience with both types of shipments and usually we are directly involved in booking the cargo on ocean vessels.
Fortune Steel is aiming to ship by first class vessels in order to avoid damage to the material. Still, there is always a risk that the steel products can be damaged due to transportation. Upon request, Fortune Steel can arrange insurance which is applicable for the specific type of steel.
