International transport of dangerous goods can be carried out by different modes of transport: from a car to an airplane. They have in common the main rule-ensuring the safety of people and the environment.
Classification of Hazardous goods
For the classification of Hazardous goods the European agreement on the transport of dangerous goods (European Agreement on Transport of Dangerous Goods on Road) or abbreviated AFC is used. In this case, the category of "dangerous" includes substances or objects that can cause harm to human or animal health, lead to environmental pollution or damage to infrastructure as a result of explosion, fire or leakage.
According to AVC, all dangerous goods and substances are divided into 9 classes. In total, there are more than 3,000 species. These are alkalis, acids, chemical fertilizers, pesticides, some types of paints, varnishes, certain types of batteries and much more. In addition to the classification, AVC specifies the conditions for packaging and transport of dangerous goods.
Features of delivery of Hazardous goods
Given the possible serious consequences, the requirements for the international transport of Hazardous goods are quite strict.
In this case, a key aspect of security can reasonably be called preparatory work.
It consists of:
- competent choice of the type of vehicle to create the necessary conditions for the storage of cargo;
- preparation of permission documentation for the cargo, and the use of road transport – additional vehicle and driver;
- development of the plan of loading and fastening;
- route selection with minimal costs and the ability to move dangerous goods.

To send dangerous goods fill out an application on our website. All calculations we perform on an individual basis, taking into account the characteristics of the cargo, the amount of customs duties or the need for certification for some products. For this reason, there is no online calculator on the site. It gives only approximate calculations, and the final result will be significantly different from the real one. We initially take into account all the variable data and give the final cost and time of delivery.
