Dangerous goods handling

Dangerous goods or Hazardous Material handling

Commodities classified as Dangerous goods (DG) or Hazardous Material (HAZMAT) comprise of various chemicals, mixtures of substances, manufactured products or articles which can pose a risk to people, animals or the environment if not properly handled in use or in transport.

Many products that we come into contact with on a daily basis can be considered as hazardous to our health, especially if we come into contact with them. The packaging of substances that have explosive, chemical, radioactive or biological properties plays an integral part in the transportation of such items, as this prevents their unnecessary exposure to humans and other living organisms.

The service offerings include repackaging of DG shipments as per IATA DG regulations for Air shipments, and IMO regulations for Ocean shipments and cover any and all DG or Hazardous materials classified commodities.
