Read More About Our Dangerous Goods Policy
MBE makes the transport of approved or permitted dangerous goods considerably easier than it used to be. We do however have to comply with legal regulations and requirements. You can read more about our dangerous goods policy right here...
Specialist Carriers for Dangerous Goods
A shipping company needs to follow certain laws in order to transport dangerous waste, such as:
- IATA for air transport
- ADR for road transport
- Various other legal requirements
For this reason, we hand-pick the courier companies we work with when delivering dangerous items.
Correct Packing and Markings
Every shipping company that transports dangerous goods requires that they are properly packaged and labelled as such. We'll make sure that your items comply with the regulations of the company in question, and we can provide professional packing services should they be necessary. But under most circumstances, we'll require that you have made the items fit for their journey.
You are also responsible for making sure that they have the correct documentation required by both the departure and arrival states and countries.
