Tata Steel Europe transports millions of tonnes of steel products annually on inland waterways and on short- and deep-sea routes. Safe handling, stowage and securing of steel products in barges and sea-going vessels requires care and specialist knowledge.

Loading and securing of steel products for container shipment is a specialist activity to ensure safety of the load for all modalities. A guide to securing Tata Steel products in containers has been developed by On-Site Logistics in IJmuiden and a copy can be obtained by contacting us.
To ensure the safe handling and storage of Tata Steel Europe’s products in ports and warehouses across the extensive worldwide logistics network, the Tata Steel Europe Global Ports and Warehousing Standard has been developed. For further information contacting us.
