    shipped off

    Hi All,
    I was reading this sentence and want to make sure that I understood it correctly

    For cladding work, extra concrete on well/block work shall be shipped off by main contractor.

    Isn't that mean that the main contractor will send the extra concrete required for well/block work?
    thanks in advance.

    Re: shipped off

    That's how I would interpret it.

    Is it possible that the sentence might mean that the unnecessary concrete will be removed by the main contractor?

    It's possible. The intended meaning of the sentence is not clear.
