The regulations governing the transport of dangerous goods are specified in the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations by Air and IMO International Maritime Organization Regulations manuals. All hazardous goods are classified accordingly within these manuals and the rules explain in detail the quantities permitted to be carried in each package and the type of packing required. With the help of our qualified and experienced team, we can ensure that your shipment is packed, documented and shipped in a fully compliant, professional and cost-effective manner.
Packing of dangerous goods is of the utmost importance. Tudor International Freight is able to provide a full packing service using UN approved and certified boxes and labels.
We have a constant stock of UN-approved fibreboard (4G) boxes and other customised packaging, suitable to safely move hazardous goods as well as the necessary absorbent materials. For temperature-sensitive goods we are also able to provide packing services for shipments requiring dry ice to ensure goods remain frozen during transit.
Documentation is a priority for all dangerous goods shipments and at Tudor International Freight we have qualified staff that are trained to IATA and IMO standards.
If you prepare your own documentation Tudor International Freight offer a complimentary document check service to ensure there are no obvious errors or mistakes which could cause your shipment to be rejected by the carrier causing unnecessary delays to your shipment.
The Dangerous Goods Note is a legal requirement for the transport of dangerous goods by air, sea and road. The person responsible for signing the Dangerous Goods Note is required by law to have received the appropriate training. Tudor International Freight ensures all staff handling dangerous goods shipments are up to date with their training requirements and have full access to all relevant publications regarding the transport of dangerous goods.
Forwarding of dangerous goods could not be easier with Tudor International Freight. With a strong relationship with the world's major airlines and shipping lines, we are able to secure priority space for your dangerous goods shipments.
