This guide focuses on correct loading, stowage, care and securing of steel cargoes. Its guidance assists ship Masters in the avoidance and prevention of steel cargo damage claims.

This guide discusses steel cargo surveys and bills of lading. It explains various types of steel cargo damage and describes how these should be reported on a bill of lading. Detailed guidance is provided on steel coils and ship strength, with reference to the common structural rules. Photographs and diagrams illustrate the stresses posed by different stowage configurations and there is a useful checklist of ‘dos and don’ts’ when loading steel cargo. The book is appended with detailed case studies, the first examining a claim for damaged cargo and the second a claim due to poor dunnage.
