Scrap metal refers to recycled and discarded metal products such as iron, steel, aluminum, and copper, which are collected and processed for resale. In the shipping industry, it plays a crucial role in supporting the global demand for raw materials for the production of new metal products.

Scrap metal is often transported by ships to overseas locations for processing and reuse. This shipping process plays an important role in the global trade of scrap metal, enabling a sustainable and cost-effective way to meet the growing demand for metal products.
