2 - 05/97 - Steel Shipments ex Klaipeda (Lithuania)
Please ensure owners requesting pre-loading steel surveys in this port are notified of the above. Please also, if appointing a local surveyor to conduct a pre-loading steel survey, stress the need that accurate surveying is required and that shipping documents must be claused.
We have also heard that a large majority of all coils coming from inland Russian steel mills are being brought to Klaipeda on open waggons exposed to the elements. We understand there is a way of proving that the open waggons were open by reading the waggon numbers (available on the shipping orders) should you want any further information on this please contact the undernamed.
