Monfalcone, record shipment for CPM: 22,000 tons of steel slabs

MONFALCONE – The staff of Compagnia Portuale di Monfalcone unloaded yesterday 22 thousand tons of slabs, steel parts 4 to 12 meter long sailed from Ukraine on board Elaziz vessel.

With this new record the company -part of T.O. Delta Group, one of the major players in the logistics and intermodal transport landscape in Italy, also controlling Trieste Marine Terminal- confirms itself as a leader in the steel handling sector in Friuli Venezia Giulia. Dock operation was carried out thanks to the new 150-ton capacity Liebherr crane, which allowed the steel plates to be unloaded by use of a large magnet. The particularly innovative technique used yesterday in the Port of Monfalcone does not require extra-size lashing, thus resulting in greater safety for the staff, and more efficient and time-saving handling of the cargo.
