Steel cargo pre-loading surveys have the main purpose of inspecting the cargo to determine and document its condition before loading. If the cargo is not as described in the shipping documentation, can be rejected, or accepted and adequately describe any differences on the mates’ receipts and bills of lading. Early notification of any deficiencies to the shippers is desirable together with owner’s intentions on rejection of the cargo or clausing the mate’s receipts and bills of lading. This notification can be given direct to the shippers but is more commonly given to the agents, stevedores or charterers, depending on the owners’ contractual relations.
It is normally recommended that pre-loading surveys be carried out on the following products:
• Hot rolled steel in coils or bundles
• Cold rolled steel in coils, packs or bundles
• Galvanized steel
• Stainless steel
• Tin plates
• Wire rods
• Steel pipes
• Structural steel (rebars, channels, angles, beams, bars,strips, sections, forgings)
