Good’s Transportation also includes cases where, occasionally or regularly, dangerous substances (according to a specific categorization described by national legislation) are transported. Depending on the category and classification of the dangerous substances, specifications and restrictions are set concerning their transportation.
Specifications and restrictions are defined by Dangerous Goods Safety Advisory in order to achieve safe loading and transporting conditions, from the supplier to the customer. Carriage specifications for each dangerous substance is described in detail in the Diagnostic Study.
ADR is the acronym (Accord european relatif au transport international des merchandises Dangereuses par Route) of the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road. In addition, there is an agreement concerning international carriage by rail, which refers to the RID acronym (Reglement International concernant le transport des marchandises angereuses par chemin de fer).
