Shipping

Our shipping team is vastly experienced and their organisational skills always get the job done. They have a keen eye for detail that covers everything from a triple check process for the crating and loading of containers to an understanding of documentation requirements. Should a problem arise it is dealt with in a calm and efficient manner.

40ft open top containers are the main stay of our business, as this means we can load steel members up to 11.9 metres long. For smaller steel below 5.85 metres long we can use 20ft open tops or 20ft GP containers. All our export jobs are designed with this in mind.

Everything needed to erect a REIDsteel structure is packed and delivered. We have developed a sledge loading system for 20ft GP containers that make them easier to load and allows for more options when it comes to planning container requirements. We use both lines containers and for the more difficult areas of the world to reach we can purchase “shipper’s own/one tripper” containers on behalf of our clients.

REIDsteel is heavily involved in the home market, but we also export bespoke productions to over 130 countries. Since 1919, we have supplied structures in places as varied as the Caribbean, Iceland and Africa. In some of the most remote areas of the world, where infrastructure is limited, we are proud that REIDsteel structures are often the beginning for transport connections and bigger business opportunities.

During the worldwide recession, many shipping lines have chosen to reduce fuel costs by operating their vessels at reduced speeds. For the heavy loads that REIDsteel export, this means being able to prioritise container loadings, meet customer requirements and plan the shipment in order to deliver on schedule.
