Operating facilities across the globe

Transporation and logistics

With a network of nationwide – and even international – operating facilities strategically located in major scrap producing and metal melting markets, we are uniquely positioned to offer a competitive advantage in distribution efficiency, both in terms of cost and reliability.

All of our facilities can ship directly by truck and rail, and many can ship by water in barges or ocean going vessels, enabling us to have greater market access, keep freight costs lower and provide volume shipments on a timely basis. It all adds up to one of the most comprehensive, efficient and environmentally safe scrap transportation systems in the industry.
