Ensuring fast and safe transport across the supply chain

Shipping dangerous goods is about much more than just transport. That’s why we work with you to deliver safety and efficiency in every part of the logistics chain.

Take our work with US-based Arch Chemicals, for example. Arch Chemicals produce calcium hypochlorite, a chemical additive that makes dirty water safe to drink. Arch Chemicals supplies calcium hypochlorite to disaster-hit areas, which means getting the product to its destination at short notice is essential. This is not just about good business; it’s about saving lives.

We work with Arch Chemicals to ensure safe and fast transport of their calcium hypochlorite from beginning to end. We also ensure that production and loading procedures meet current transport and Dangerous Goods Regulations. As a result, Arch Chemicals can deliver its life-saving product to the people who need it, when they need it.

Safe and sustainable shipping of dangerous cargo

When it comes to shipping dangerous cargo, sustainability is about more than emissions. It’s also about safety. So we monitor your shipment from door to door, reducing the risk to your cargo and to the environment, while assuring a smooth-running supply chain.

And, to maximise your environmental performance, we deliver full transparency over your supply chain impacts – and have in-house experts ready to help with any specific sustainability issues.
