Commodity cargo vs conveyors

Coal terminal with conveyors

Dirty, abrasive coal, metals and cements. Dry, dusty grains, starches and wood chips. Moving all of it and more takes a significant toll on conveyor components and uptime. Constant exposure to corrosive salts, outdoor elements and heavy loads only makes effective maintenance even more difficult. Despite the harsh materials and conditions, operators must still offload cargo quickly to stay on schedule and keep harbour costs low.
