When global scrap prices are high. Sims is able to load and export 500 tons of scrap per day into 20ft shipping containers using a single A-Ward container loader.
Sims Pacific Metals challenged A-Ward to supply versatile container loader to enable extremely fast loading of export scrap metal into 20ft shipping containers. Sims wanted to be able to rapidly turn around high volumes of scrap when global scrap prices were favorable and not have mountains of scrap clogging up their yards and putting pressure on cash flow. Sims also requested that the container loaders have the ability to be moved very easily between stockpiles, to be particularly robust and have considerable weighing accuracy.
