Fastmarkets is extending until Saturday August 31 the consultation period for its proposal to launch a daily containerized steel scrap cfr Vietnam assessment.

Assessment: Steel scrap HMS 1&2 (80:20) containerized import, cfr main port Vietnam, $/tonne
Quality: Heavy melting scrap (HMS) 1&2 (80:20) mix
Quantity: Containerized
