FPS Melbourne wins steel project


The Melbourne, Australia branch of Famous Pacific Shipping (FPS) has secured the contract to handle the import, unpacking and inland delivery of 52 containers loaded with 1138 tonnes of steel coil. 
The steel – in 168 coils weighing 7-9 tonnes each – arrived in Melbourne on an ANL sailing from China. FPS Melbourne handled the monitoring of the shipment, Customs clearance, collection of the containers from the wharf and transfer to its own 10,000 sq m container freight station and warehouse facility. 
The steel requires slitting, before being used in the construction of multi-level commercial buildings. As the slitting mills have no facilities for container handling, FPS is unpacking the coils and loading them onto its own flatbed vehicles. It will require around 50 truck journeys to deliver the steel to the slitting plant 45km away; there, the coil is being craned off, slit, and delivered to FPS’s customer. 
FPS Victoria was established in 1994, and its Melbourne branch was one of the very first in the FPS network. The company also has a base in Sydney, and fellow members in Brisbane and Fremantle.
