TRANSPORT OF DANGEROUS MATERIALS
The transportation of dangerous goods is a specific transport subject to extremely strict regulations.
In order to avoid damage, those involved in the logistics of dangerous goods (shipper, packer, loader, carrier, etc.) must take special measures and comply with the prescribed rules:
DEFINITION OF ADR
By their physical or chemical properties, hazardous materials are substances that are dangerous to humans and the environment. They are even more so when they are transported, because they can be flammable, toxic, explosive, corrosive or radioactive. This is why road transport is regulated by the ADR (Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road).
D.T.International organizes the transportation of hazardous materials with various major players in the field according to your request and needs.
D.T.International collaborates with several road transport companies operating in France and Europe with ADR approved personnel.
The road transport of dangerous goods is governed by the ADR code (Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road).
As for the international air transport of dangerous goods, it is regulated by IATA rules. Warning: Due to being extremely dangerous, certain goods are banned from being transported on board of an aircraft; others are only allowed on CARGO ships, but most of materials are accepted on a passenger aircraft as long as they comply with the IATA regulations. Specific packaging may be required for certain dangerous material products.
We also work with maritime carriers who regularly transport hazardous material products. Maritime transport is regulated by the International Maritime Organization (IMDG). We prioritize this mode of transport for international shipments with large volumes.
For national and/or international rail transport, the regulations concerning dangerous goods are called RID (Regulation concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Rail). As for international river transport, it is governed by the ADN (European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Inland Waterways). We use these modes of transportation for ecological reasons, or in order to relieve road congestion or to lower the dramatic risks in case of leakage.
Our experts are specially trained and can assist you with logistics and transport of hazardous materials products.
