Transporting Dangerous Goods

Services to cover your shipping needs for dangerous goods

Most people working in the chemical sector understand the rules related to the storage and transport of their products. Many people are surprised at what is classified as dangerous or hazardous.

They are even more surprised to find out that what is not “dangerous” in a low quantity can suddenly become so, once a certain quantity limit is exceeded, or if a different packaging is used. In fact there are “dangerous” goods in almost every home and almost every handbag.
