What issues should be paid attention to when shipping aluminum plates?

- Nov 12, 2018-

 China’s reform and opening up has become more and more in-depth, and its links with the world economy have become more and more close. Domestic aluminum plate manufacturers have also discovered a broader international market, and have taken advantage of their own advantages to sell domestic aluminum plates to all parts of the world. The export of aluminum plates is basically carried out by sea, and the special environment of shipping has damaged the goods of many aluminum plate manufacturers. Today, we will talk to you about the problems that should be paid attention to when shipping aluminum plates.

1, the size of the aluminum plate packaging. Aluminum plate shipping is basically using containers, and the current standard container size is fixed. In order to facilitate the packing, aluminum plate manufacturers must first pay attention to the size of the package. The right size is not only suitable for packing, but also makes efficient use of the container volume and saves shipping costs. In addition, if the destination is an underdeveloped area such as Africa, the weight of a single piece of aluminum plate should not exceed 300 kg, because the local port does not have large loading and unloading equipment, mainly by manual handling, too heavy packaging will increase the difficulty of unloading.

2, aluminum plate manufacturers must not ignore the sealing of marine packaging. Although it is transported by container, the container is generally not sealed. It is very common for containers to enter the water when it encounters rain or heavy winds. The aluminum plate is not tightly sealed, and once it enters the water, oxidation and corrosion are difficult to avoid. Therefore, in order to ensure the safety of the aluminum plate, the aluminum plate manufacturer must not use it, and use more sealing materials to protect the aluminum plate in detail.

3. The aluminum plate is transported shortly in the country. It does not need to be fixed specifically for the aluminum plate. The shipping period is long. After the wind and waves, the bumps of the ship cause the aluminum plates to collide with each other in the container. Without additional reinforcement, the collision will not only seriously damage the aluminum plate. The packaging will also cause serious damage to the aluminum plate itself, and aluminum plate manufacturers must pay attention to it.
