    Greetings from www.thenavalarch.com!
    We are delighted to publish an article by Mr Spiros Malliaroudakis, who is the Founder and MD of S.A.Malliaroudakis Maritime (UK) Ltd (S.A. Malliaroudakis Maritime (UK) Ltd. - Homepage http://www.smmnet.com/). The article gives insight into the challenges encountered in Steel Coil Loading and the ways to overcome them. An extract is presented below:

    "
    When loaded in a ship’s hold, steel coils are placed on dunnage. Dunnage has two functions, to spread the steel’s load uniformly in relation to the ship’s structure and to provide frictional resistance. One inch thick softwood dunnage is often used with steel coils. Dunnage can be a mixture of imperial and metric measurements, with 8 inch by 1 inch planks used with steel coils. 60mm by 80mm is used with steel plate and bars, and 6 inch by 4 inch is used with heavy steel.
