Dangerous goods

Do you need to ship dangerous goods? Keep the regulations for packaging and transportation of hazardous materials in mind!

What are dangerous goods? 

Dangerous goods are substances that can pose risks to health, safety or the environment. Especially if they are not properly handled, transported or packed. 

Dangerous goods are classified into 9 classes of dangerous goods. Each dangerous good is assigned a UN number that is used in documentation, packaging, labeling, and transportation. 

Regulations for packaging and transportation of hazardous goods 

The regulations for the transportation of dangerous goods are based on the dangerous goods class and the mode of transportation. The main regulations for packaging and transporting dangerous goods:  

Quantity limits for handling, packaging and transportation of dangerous goods 

The quantity of a product also determines the hazard. That is why quantity limits for safe transportation have been established for dangerous goods. 

The class and quantity of the dangerous goods you want to ship affect how they must be documented, handled, packaged, labeled and transported. 

➡ Check if the goods you need to ship are dangerous goods, and under which regulations they fall. In multimodal transport, these may be multiple regulations. 

Trained staff for handling and packaging of dangerous goods 

Staff handling dangerous goods must have appropriate training. Handling dangerous goods means, among other things: 

  • Loading and unloading of dangerous goods. 

  • Packing and preparing dangerous goods for transport. 

  • Transportation of dangerous goods. 

  • Design, production, inspection, repair of packages or parts of packages used to transport hazardous materials. 

The packing of dangerous goods must be done by employees who are trained to do so. Handling and packing dangerous goods requires specific capabilities, skills and training. 

➡ Make sure your employees (and the employees of your service providers) have the proper training to handle dangerous goods.

Transport documents for the transport of dangerous goods 

Dangerous goods shipments must be accompanied by the proper documents. Missing or incorrect documents cause delays, fines or worse, mishandling and therefore danger.

Packaging and labeling of dangerous goods for transportation 

Dangerous goods must be packed in a package approved - according to their UN class - and provided with the appropriate labels and the markings required by law. 

➡ Make sure you have the proper and complete documentation with your dangerous goods shipment. Also, make sure you have the proper labeling on the packaging of your dangerous goods!

Do you ship various dangerous goods? In changing quantitiesThat are shipped via different modes of transportation? 

➡ The proper handling, packing, labeling and documentation of dangerous goods is important. Make sure it is done correctly!
