How can We help
Solutions for Dangerous Goods handled with expertise, safety and compliance
Dangerous Goods, also referred to with the abbreviation “DG”, refers to materials or goods containing properties that can be a potential hazard to human health and safety, including infrastructure. Transportation of Dangerous Goods can be a complicated process, requiring experience and in-depth understanding of regulations.
What is “Dangerous Goods”?
There are nine classes of Dangerous Goods, with some classes including more specific sub-divisions. These classes are standard across the world, and are regulated both internationally, and nationally. Internationally, the regulatory bodies for the transportation of DG include ICAO’s Technical Instructions, IATA’s Dangerous Goods Regulations, the United Nations Recommendations on the Tarpot of Dangerous Goods and the IMO’s International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code.
Additionally, some countries impose more specific and sometimes stricter regulations, and if you are moving your DG through these countries, you must ensure you adhere to the local requirements. Our global freight forwarding network is located at key logistics hubs across the world in the Asia-Pacific, Europe, India and Oceania, and we work closely with preferred partners in the Americas and other regions.
