MIKO Group are experts in the transport of dangerous goods according to the best European standards. This year, the company has once again confirmed its compliance with the safety and environmental standards of logistics according to SQAS (European rating system for chemical logistics providers). The main activity of the company is the transportation of bulk chemical raw materials in tanks and tank containers, but we also transport packaged and non-standard dangerous goods.
In this post, MIKO experts have collected basic information about the transport of goods with a hazard class. When transporting dangerous goods, logisticians are guided by the instructions of ADR, a document that describes the safety requirements and labeling of transport. Only managers and drivers who have passed the appropriate trainings are allowed to transport ADR. Depending on the characteristics of the cargo, special transport may also be required. In addition, for some liquid dangerous goods, special vehicle washing standards are applied.

In accordance with ADR, there are 9 hazard classes of goods:
Depending on the hazard class and the type of cargo (liquid, packaged), different safety standards and vehicle marking are applied. General rules include:
– Orange plates with the UN code for the designation of the cargo, as well as plates indicating the hazard class of the cargo.
– Decals are located at the front, rear, and sides of the container / tank, on the truck.
– In the case of a multi-section tank transporting dangerous goods, danger signs are placed next to each compartment with ADR raw materials.
According to ADR, in some cases, the carriage of dangerous and non-dangerous goods in one car is allowed. This applies only to some classes of prepackaged goods up to 100 kg.
A trained driver after ADR training and correct vehicle labeling are extremely important when transporting dangerous goods to ensure environmental safety and reduce reputational risks for the client. In the event of a road accident, the correct and timely reaction of the driver and special services will several times reduce the negative consequences for people and the environment.
