Hazardous goods logistics include the transit of high-risk substances and other industrial materials. Due to their risk to the environment, humans, or other materials, this transport solution must include specialist measures to ensure safe and secure transit. Hazardous goods logistics refer to transportation by land, rail, waterways, sea, or air.
Specialist measures for hazardous goods include meticulous training of staff, packaging and conditioning. This includes the handling and storage of hazardous goods in order to ensure the safety of humans and the environment, as well as other goods being transported.
The most common Hazmat materials to be transported worldwide include petrol, diesel, Propylene, Fireworks, Liquefied Petroleum Gas, Carbon Dioxide, Sulfuric Acid and Argon.
The United Nations (UN) developed a system of classification for hazardous chemical substances which is constantly examined and modified where necessary. There are currently 9 different classifications which form the basis of requirements for the handling and transportation of hazardous goods. These are:
Class 1 Explosives: materials that could explode under specific circumstances.
Class 2 Gases: all pressurised gases.
Class 3 Flammable Liquids: liquids that have a flashpoint lower than 93 degrees.
Class 4 Flammable Solids: solids that are readily combustible or may cause fire through friction.
Class 5 Oxidizing: materials that have the ability to produce enough oxygen to initiate and sustain combustion with other materials.
Class 6 Toxic & Infectious: substances that pose a serious risk to human health and safety if ingested, inhaled or through contact with the skin.
Class 7 Radioactive materials: substances that contain radionuclides that exceed specified limits.
Class 8 Corrosives: substances that deteriorate or disintegrate live tissue or other materials.
Class 9 Miscellaneous: dangerous goods that don’t fit into other Hazmat classes.
When working with hazardous materials, there are significant potential dangers during handling and transportation. That’s why all our staff are trained in line with the latest safety regulations. So while there are dangers that come with hazardous goods logistics, we work to ensure all our products are transported with the highest level of safety and security.
