Hudson utilizes separations to maximize the space allocated to customer cargoes. This efficient technique allows Hudson to transport customer commodities in the most advantageous and cost-effective manner. Hudson is then able to pass along these benefits to its customers by providing flexible shipping schedules and the ability to transport a wider variety of commodities.
Horizontal Separations can be used to separate and hermetically seal different qualities of very sensitive or expensive cargo within the same hold. This separation technique is the most expensive technique, as each separation is custom-made to guarantee that the different grades/commodities will not be combined in any way during the voyage.
Used when transporting high-stowing and relatively light cargoes like grain, this appropriately-named technique allows for separation and sealing when carrying several different grades or types of commodities within a single hold.
Typically, an angled separation is used when loading dense commodities such as ores. Using plates and special trimming techniques, angled separations are one of the most utilized separations that Hudson employs.
Lumped separations are useful as a high-efficiency, lower-cost alternative to using expensive steel plating and custom created plastic sheets, but are only considered when the commodity being carried has a lower sensitivity for comingling within the hold. Hudson always takes special care in handling all cargoes but, if our techniques can assist a customer in safely delivering their cargo and reducing their costs, we will absolutely explore every possibility.
