Hazardous Cargo Packing

Packing goods that are dangerous or considered hazardous takes specialist skills. Whether you are looking to transport dangerous goods by sea, by air or by road, the packing crates, packaging boxes or wooden crates used must be fit for purpose and compliant with international standards.

A particularly specialised area within the transportation sector the handling, storage, packaging and subsequent transportation of hazardous materials must be dealt with by specifically trained staff.

Safety being the primary concern, Cruiseway insists that all handling procedures and documentation are undertaken by members of staff certified for the handing of hazardous good for Air freight or Sea freight ensuring that the goods arrive safely, with the correct documentation.

We ensure packing is to the relevant IATA / IMDG / ADR regulations and particular airline requirements.

Once packed if required, we are able to over pack the hazardous items into wooden cases, this will give complete piece of mind and full protection to the shipment.
