Impressive Shipment of Curved Structural Steel

Today we shipped out a two stop load that took some care in stacking from our veteran loaders. This load will head down to Modesto, Ca where some of this material is for the 1000 Page Mill Road Building. Then the truck will continue on to Phoenix, AZ. Where the balance of the material is to be used for a fitness center.

This load included many types of materials:

TS 10” x 8” x .500”Wall
TS 6” x 2” x .375” Wall
TS 8” x 6” x .375”Wall
3” x 3” x ¼” Angle
C12 x 20.7#
TS 12” x 4” x .375” Wall
TS 16” x 8” x .500” Wall

As you can see by the pictures, this was not very easy to puzzle together as to how best to stack the material for safe shipping as well as easy offloading. With that said, it only took our loader 3 hours to load and stack in a safe manner that both the loader and the driver were happy with.
