Transport of dangerous goods

The main line of work of OptimaTransService is freight of hazardous goods from “door to door”. Our experts will ensure the safety of your cargo at all stages of transportation, as well as prevent the occurrence of accidents.

The organization of international transportation of hazardous goods using several transportation modes is a complex process requiring specific knowledge. Such work is best left to professionals as the environmental safety needs to be considered. Many countries have strict safety regulations in place since transportation of hazardous materials could potentially raise emergency situations resulting in having a negative impact on the environment (irreversible changes to the environment itself, extinction of species of plants and animals) and to cause substantial harm to human life and health.

Among such regulations are labelling, safety instructions containing very important information on what to do in case of spillage, substance leaking, packaging damage, use of suitable fire fighting equipment, first aid, etc.

In addition, there are a number of international treaties and agreements regulating transportation of hazardous goods:

- RID - Regulations Concerning the International Transport of Dangerous Goods by Rail

- IMDG - International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code

- ADR - European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (has been created at the initiative of the UN). It applies to all EU countries, as well as Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Morocco. In Russia, a similar agreement is called DOPOG;

- ICAO-TI - International Civil Aviation Organisation Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air

The official list of hazardous materials permitted for transportation includes about three thousand names and detailed classification. Transportation of Dangerous Goods of a certain class can only be done when respective rules are followed.
