ADR — Transport of dangerous goods

ADR or "Dangerous Goods" is a collective term for substances and objects that can cause damage to people, the environment or property, if not handled properly during transportation. The transportation of dangerous goods is regulated by many laws and regulations. The purpose of these regulations is to prevent hazardous situations. The concepts of transport of dangerous goods or ADR transport cover more than just movement by vehicle.

More about dangerous goods and ADR

The classification of dangerous goods determines how ADR transport is carried out. The consignor is responsible for the correct classification of the dangerous goods but all actors involved - consignor, loader, unloader, carrier and consignee - are responsible for ensuring that the handling of dangerous goods is followed throughout the supply chain. Dangerous goods are divided into nine different groups and classified in accordance with the UN regulations on the transport of dangerous goods (ADR).
