In order to meet the needs of our customers, all of our personnel are trained and authorized to transport dangerous goods. This is called “ADR transport”, ADR comes from the French acronym “Accord relatif au transport international des marchandises Dangereuses par Route”.
Road transport of hazardous materials is highly regulated in Europe. It is governed by the European Agreement on the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road, which regulates international road transport by truck.
These regulations specific to the loading, transport and unloading of dangerous goods are as complex to decipher as they are restrictive.
This complexity is however necessary since it is a strict framework allowing companies to better anticipate the professional risks of activities related to the transport of dangerous products.
48 States have ratified this agreement throughout Europe.
The road transport of dangerous goods is a very specific branch of our activity as a Swiss freight forwarder.
ADR transport must be carried out under the supervision of a competent authority and must strictly respect the constraints of international transport of goods.
The various participants in the context of ADR transport must scrupulously respect the established procedures.
The shipper, the packer, the charger and the carrier must plan accordingly and carry out each step of the handling with extreme care.
Our company has always guaranteed the safety of goods and people by applying the strict regulations for ADR transport.
To professionally manage the transport of these dangerous goods:
• Our drivers are specifically trained
• Our vehicles have the ADR approval certificate and are tracked by geolocation in real time.
