Iron Industries uses bulk facilities in South Florida and Rotterdam to load, transload, and top-off shipments with scrap iron. These giant facilities are designed for 30,000 ton cargoes. Furthermore, these docks allow us to quickly consolidate scrap from multiple locations to create large-tonnage shipments.
We can receive shipments by truck, ocean container, and barge. Barge loads should contain at least 5,000 tons. Loading and unloading times vary from day to day. As a result we need to monitor the weather, tidal schedules, and ship availability.
Bulk shipments are more cost-effective than container loads. 30,000 ton loads can cost as low as $27 – $40 a ton; whereas container loads average around $80 per ton.
If you’re interested in bulk shipments please give us a call any time.
