What is hazardous cargo?

Hazardous cargo is cargo that could cause an explosion, fire, harm to human or animal health, life or the environment. 

Hazardous cargo is not only cargo that contains toxis, explosive, radioactive or other dangerous substances, but also seemingly everyday and simple cargo, for example:

  • food flavoring;
  • varnish;
  • laptops;
  • sprays;
  • parfume;
  • etc.

According to the ADR Agreement, there are 13 classes of dangerous goods:

Class 1: Explosive substances and articles;

Class 2: Gases;

Class 3: Flammable liquids;

Class 4.1: Flammable solids, self-reactive substances and solid desensitized explosives;

Class 4.2: Substances liable to spontaneous combustion;

Class 4.3: Substances which in contact with water emit flammable gases;

Class 5.1: Oxidizing substances;

Class 5.2: Organic peroxides;

Class 6.1: Toxic substances;

Class 6.2: Infectious substances;

Class 7: Radioactive materials;

Class 8: Corrosive substances;

Class 9: Miscellaneous dangerous substances and articles.

Our experience

We have experienced cases when new customers who select the services of our company have saved money, because they were not previously informed that the hazardous cargo does not require an ADR license. When assessing the description of the goods, packaging and other necessary factors, we concluded that, according to the procedure defined in the law, it is possible to ship the goods as a limited volume ADR cargo, thus significantly reducing the costs. The customers had been overpaying for a long time, using only vehicles with ADR licenses.
