DHL Freight is an established carrier of dangerous goods and can provide solutions for the transport of dangerous goods by road and rail.
Dangerous goods transports are regulated by international and national regulations according to the respective mode of transport. The purpose of these regulations is to prevent accidents to people and property as well as damage to the environment. Regulations include issues such as packaging requirements, the maximum amounts that can be transported and the kinds of goods that can or cannot be transported in the same transport unit.
In order to ensure consistency between all these regulations, mechanisms for the harmonization of hazard classification criteria and hazard communication tools as well as for transport conditions for all modes of transport have been established.
More information about dangerous goods classification can be found on the UNECE website.
