Dangerous Goods

At Ital Logistics we take the matter of transporting goods which are hazardous very seriously indeed, and do our utmost to ensure that they are carried in compliance with the rules of ADR & IMDG.

Around 25% of our total business is made up of the transport of dangerous goods. Many companies shy away from this niche market due to its complexity, so we find that many of our competitors make use of our specialism in this sector and utilise our services.

I decided that as Managing Director of Ital Logistics it was my duty to take on the role of Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor (DGSA) in April 2004. Since then I have continued to renew my qualification, and have been joined by Derek Heap as secondary DGSA to the Company. In addition to this, all members of our team involved in this area of our job are awareness trained and refreshed as regulations change.

There are many differences between the road, rail, sea and air regulations, even though with each revision the regulations come closer to alignment. The information contained in this section covers just a selection of topics and should be considered purely as a general guideline, so it is advisable to seek clarification on particular aspects from the relevant publications of ADR (Road), RID (Rail), IMDG (Sea) and IATA (Air).

Classes & Segregation

Marking & Labelling

The UK is an island. Therefore, even just to get into the closest European country, we must use a combination of modes, and as the regulations are not completely aligned, there are precedents. There are also derogations and variations by country within their own territories.

If you require any specific information or advice on the carriage of dangerous goods, please feel free to contact us, either by telephone, or email dgsa@Ital-logistics.com and we will be pleased to assist.
