Dangerous Goods Operations
Stay in control of logistics and build your reputation with fast, error free, compliant & safe preparation and shipping of dangerous goods.
Transportation of dangerous goods, whether by air, sea, road or rail is not like traditional shipping of general cargo. One cannot just put dangerous goods in a carton, put a label on it and ship it without taking the dangerous goods safety and compliance requirements into account.
Dangerous goods regulations and compliance, the safety of people, aircraft, vessels, cars, trucks, trains, equipment and storage facilities, the cargo and the environment – all must be considered.
The logistics around preparing and shipping dangerous goods for transport requires a full understanding of the relevant regulations and can be a time-consuming exercise. Cargo that is packed and sent with incorrect packaging, packing, documentation, marks and labels will cause rejections, delays and additional costs. To avoid this, you need to have the right team working with you, a team with a full understanding of the maze of complex requirements involved with transporting of dangerous goods.

No matter the size of your shipment, the mode of transport or the dangerous goods class, we have the knowledge, skills and experience to assist you.

Where required and requested we will actively participate and communicate with your other providers to ensure a smooth process regarding your dangerous goods shipping.
However, if you require a full service, we can take the process off your hands entirely, keeping you updated throughout the process with open and clear communication. We can pack and document safely worldwide and if required organise transport through our selected network of capable freight forwarders.
