Regional and international handling and transportation of hazardous cargo, are governed by set regulations and agreements. At Express Trailers, we are fully-equipped to handle most forms of dangerous cargo and we work closely with the competent authorities to ensure adherence to the constantly evolving safety measures and international standards.
International Regulations :
Dangerous goods are articles and products which can harm a person’s health, produce a safety risk or be hazardous to the environment. Notwithstanding the risks, these products need to be handled and transported to their respective destinations. Transportation via air, sea or road is covered by the European Agreement concerning the international carriage of dangerous goods by road (ADR), the International Maritime dangerous goods regulations (IMDG) and the International Air Transport Association regulations (IATA) respectively. ADR and IMDG regulations change every two years whilst IATA changes every year.
The Importance of Compliance:
Companies and exporters therefore need to ensure they are constantly in compliance with these regulations. Failure in doing so could lead to serious financial and corporate repercussions. Vehicles, including equipment carried, documentation on board, driver licences and many other aspects need to comply. This is why it is important for companies to ensure they are being serviced by trusted and experienced transport and logistics providers who are compliant and fully-versed in the intricate guidelines and regulations about transport, especially when dangerous cargo is involved.
Express Trailers’ Expertise:
Training of personnel dealing with dangerous goods, whether physical handling or consigning, is another essential priority and the regulations specify that training should take place prior to personnel taking up their responsibilities. At Express Trailers, we conduct regular refreshment training every two years so that our people remain .
This is why it is important that a seamless synergy is in place between the client and the transport company who is aware of the safety implications and the necessary procedures that need to be in place when dangerous goods are concerned, including the necessary documentation material, proper packaging according to set regulations and specifications and handling of the hazardous goods and materials at all stages of the transit.
The Vehicle Check List:
A very important aspect in the delivery chain are the vehicles utilized for the transportation of hazardous goods. Trucks and trailers carry hazardous goods for long hauls and given today’s very high safety requirements and specifications, transport companies have to constantly make sure their fleet of trailers and trucks are up to scratch. There are a lot of conditions to respect. Is the vehicle over its threshold limit for the type of goods on board, which then makes it a fully regulated journey? Does the vehicle need to be orange plated? Are Instructions in Writing required? Such information should constitute the information that completes the “Vehicle Check List”.
Trust the Orange Expertise:
Companies who need to dispatch hazardous cargo safely and securely need to constantly be in direct consultation with professionals who are aware of all the implications related to storage, packaging, markings and labelling, handling and loading of dangerous goods on a regular basis. There is a lot of liability involved and in case of an accident, much is at stake, not only expenses and concerns but also a company’s reputation and its relationship with all stakeholders. At Express Trailers, we deliver trust.
