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.[caption id="attachment_937" align="aligncenter" width="225"]Page Mill Road Building Curved Steel Page Mill Road Building Curved Steel[/caption] [caption id="attachment_938" align="aligncenter" width="225"]Complex Shipment of Curved Steel Complex Shipment of Curved Steel[/caption]
