Are you operating a company that produces dangerous waste bi-products in the course of doing business? If so, you need a company that specializes in dangerous goods shipping with drivers licensed to carry explosives, and trucks that are explosive licensed up to 1000KG or that can carry mixed loads of up to 265KG. They need to be high risk load certified, and they need a dedicated drive or “Hot shot” ready 24 hours a day to be able to transport any type of dangerous goods. Depending on where those materials are heading, the company needs to be able to transport by sea, road or air. They also need to be able to safely warehouse (store) those goods while awaiting transportation.
You need a company that understands appropriate documentation as well as the safe disposal of dangerous waste materials. The company should be well versed in consulting services aimed at freight, forwards and logistic companies. Manufactures such as those in the chemical, oil, gas, automobile, pharmaceutical and other similar industries all need to have dangerous waste goods transported. When researching which company to use, ensure the company has a history of safety, efficiency and compliance in the handling, storage and transporting of hazardous materials. They should also be able to advise and assist in the disposal of harmful waste. You should closely check their range of certified safe packaging to ensure they have what you need. Some waste needs both inner and outer packaging, and you should be able to inspect what they have available.
When dealing with the transportation, storing and transporting of hazardous waste bi-products your company produces, you need to take extra care. Before contracting, you should be able to examine their facilities, transport vehicles, packaging, storage or warehousing as well as their certifications and even the backgrounds of their drivers. You need to make sure you are well aware of the company’s safety record and of any complaints filed against that company and how they were resolved. That is a lot of due diligence, but it is necessary when it comes to the handling and transporting of dangerous goods.
