Maritime coal shipping is a popular delivery method

Coal is in demand all over the world as one of the main types of fuel. Despite the popularity of oil, this cargo is in demand in various countries. The volume of freight shipments involving this type of commodity remains at a consistently high level.

Rules for transporting coal

The freight flow of coal from Russia to different countries around the world is stable. However, not all transport companies are able to ensure careful compliance with all transportation requirements for this cargo.

According to the national standard GOST 19433, coal belongs to Hazard Class 4. A certain risk of handling such cargo is also recognized at the international level: coal is assigned UN serial number 1361 (this number allows identifying this product among other types of dangerous goods).

Maritime transportation of ore

Ore is one of the largest shipments of cargo transported by sea-going vessels. Ore refers to the bulk type of cargo, that is, one that is transported without a container, in bulk.

Due to such feature, ore transportation is connected with certain hazards, such as displacement of cargo, its liquefaction and overflow, ignition, formation of poisonous or explosive gases, and impairment of ship strength. Therefore, the ore cannot simply be loaded into the hold and transported in this manner. Such loading makes the ship excessively stable, which contributes to too rapid rocking when caught in a storm. Due to the rolling, the cargo can shift and the ship could capsize.

For this reason, special ships — ore carriers — are used to transport bulk cargoes. Their holds have different configurations and are equipped in such a way as to not only safely transport the ore, but also ease the loading and unloading of the cargo.

In addition to using specialized transportation, transport safety depends on compliance with transportation conditions, such as the transportable moisture limit. Failing to adhere to this criterion leads to cargo liquefaction and, as a result, emergency situations where the cargo becomes spoiled.

To prevent such situations, it is necessary to carefully check the cargo before loading and monitor it during transportation. Transportation safety largely depends on the company providing logistics services.
