The carriage of dangerous goods by road, rail, inland waterway, sea and air is regulated internationally by European agreements, directives and regulations, and parallel legislation in the UK.
Dangerous Goods, which include a wide range of substances and materials, must be handled carefully and specifically. At PSP Logistics we have a team of highly trained Dangerous Goods experts to provide you with the necessary support and advice to ensure your Dangerous Goods shipment arrives safely and reliably.
It is essential that you do not make any mistakes when preparing the paperwork, otherwise you could experience delays. So as well as our hazardous packing services, we can complete all of the necessary paperwork on your behalf, ensuring that your consignments are correctly documented and move quickly through the supply chain without any hold ups.
The Dangerous Goods Note (DGN) is a transport document that gives details about the contents of a shipment to carriers, receiving authorities and forwarders and is used to accompany dangerous goods in transit. You can use a DGN when you transport goods using all forms of transport except air freight, when the IATA Dangerous Goods Declaration (DGD) is used.
Dangerous goods can be transported safely by air as long as certain principles are strictly followed. Packaging is the essential component in the safe transport of dangerous goods by air. The IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations provide packing instructions for all dangerous goods acceptable for air transport with a wide range of options for inner, outer, and single packaging.
