All goods classed as ‘Hazardous’ are subject to strict rules governing storage, packaging, labelling and compatibility. It is essential that the correct rules and regulations are followed in order to transport hazardous cargo safely and legally by Sea, Air and Road. At Carry Cargo International Ltd we are experts in shipping hazardous goods and would welcome any enquiries and queries you may have.
Goods are classified under the following categories:
Class 1 – EXPLOSIVE SUBSTANCES AND ARTICLES
Class 2 – GASSES

If you are unsure as to the status of any cargo you may wish to move please do not hesitate to ask, we are able to provide information concerning the classification, packing, labelling and shipping of any of the above categories. It is essential that any shipper of hazardous cargo appoints a Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor to ensure that packing, paperwork and carriage of said goods comply with International law.
Goods of different hazardous classes cannot always be packed or shipped together in order to minimise risk to the environment and all concerned parties. We have enclosed a compatibility table to offer a guideline should you have more than one class of hazard to ship at the same time.
For any further information concerning the carriage of dangerous goods please contact any of our dedicated export team who will be only too happy to assist.
All business is carried out under the current BIFA standard trading terms and conditions which are available upon request.
