Transport & logistics

Our steel solutions being transported across the globe.

Our strategically located sites allow for fast, efficient delivery of products worldwide, using road, rail, river or marine transport.

The British Steel Transport & Logistics Operations manual has been developed to provide guidance for dealing with our products in all parts of the logistics chain.

Contract logistics service providers must take care to ensure product integrity and quality on delivery to our customers. The condition of the delivered product is a reflection upon us as one of the world's leading suppliers of quality steel.

Health & safety is of paramount importance to British Steel and we expect the same of our contract logistics service providers and third parties. All British Steel safety initiatives and policies must be adhered to at all times.
