An intense, repetitive job where every second counts: lifting steel coils, typically weighing up to 35 tons each, into the hulls of ships can only be done by highly experienced stevedoring crews. And these crews must perform each step to perfection to avoid damaging the coils – and themselves. Plus, given that a skilled crew costs an average of $1,500 per hour, time is money.
In need of a lift
US stevedoring company Canton Stevedoring understood this key industry challenge better than most. As one of the largest stevedoring companies on the East Coast, Canton was looking for a more efficient way to lift heavy steel coils onto the docks of Baltimore, MD. The company had been using traditional wire mesh slings. Now it was ready for a solution that would save time and money without compromising safety in any way.
