The majority of transport-related damages are caused by insufficient packaging in combination with normal mechanical strains during transportation.
These would be generally avoidable by choosing the correct and adequate packaging material prior to transportation.
Selecting 3-times corrugated cardboard rather than only 2-times increases the compression resistance of a cardboard’s topside by a multiple factor and therefore contributes to safe and regular transport. The mounting of saddle supports on large pressure vessels or buffer tanks needs to be designed in a way that the outside of the vessel and its coating remains undamaged and intact after transport. But it needs to be taken off after transport without residue as well.
Experts’ advice by TRITON MARINE helps to increase the packaging quality prior to transport.
Besides the aspect of safe handling the commercial aspect is also taken into consideration.
