Webinar invitation: Flat racks - Heavy-weight champions with a catch

Whenever it gets big and heavy in containerised transport, flat racks take the strain. With payloads of up to 50 mt, flat racks allow the shipment of liner cargo that will not fit into any container, and this is particularly favourable for today’s just-in-time manufacturers. However, transport of large and heavy cargo is still risky business. Excessive width or height can damage the cargo even during transport or handling. Careful planning and regular inspections will minimise these risks.

In his second IUMI webinar, Christian Bohlken from Battermann & Tillery will discuss practical aspects and pitfalls related to the loading of cargo on flat racks.  

Following the presentation Christian will take questions from the audience.

Several show short videos will be shown during this webinar to demonstrate practical aspects related to storage on flat racks. For this reason a strong internet connection is highly recommended.
