Transporting dangerous goods or hazardous material has always been a complex procedure. When shipping such material, special consideration needs to be given to packaging, labelling, Dangerous Goods documentation, transportation, handling, and storage facilities.

Health and Safety is the primary concern when dealing with dangerous goods and ensuring your cargo arrives safely to your event, with the correct documentation in place.

When transporting any kind of hazardous material, by sea, by air or by road, the packaging used must be fit for purpose and compliant with international standards. These standards and the regulations governing the movement of Dangerous Goods are frequently reviewed and updated.

Dangerous goods are categorised into 9 classes, and according to the class, certain regulations apply. Premier have good relationships with the world’s major airlines, shipping lines and hauliers, enabling us to secure space for dangerous goods.

Such shipments are, always, subject to acceptance by the carrier, and this can often be influenced by compatibility (or otherwise) of any other hazardous shipments that they may be carrying. It is, therefore, recommended that we receive early notification of any intended hazardous consignments, in order to make the appropriate arrangements.

With the help of our qualified and experienced team we can ensure that your dangerous goods or hazardous material is packed, documented, and shipped in a fully compliant, professional, timely and cost-effective manner.
