Transportation of hazardous loads
Transportation of hazardous loads demands observance of certain rules and use of distinct means of transport. Therefore this type of transportation can be carried out only by a company that has a solid experience of working in this field, competent experts in its personnel and has a special package of approval documents and licenses at its disposal.
All the hazardous loads have a clearly stated classification which is necessary for arranging the transportation in keeping with the essential normative rules and requirements.
Specialists of the RUSTA Company would not only help you determine the freight hazard class but also develop a secure plan of its delivery with the best possible value.
Classification of loads that fall under the category of “hazardous” ones:
Class 1. Highly flammable substances which can cause conflagration or explosion of the whole freight (e.g., pyrotechnics).
Class 2. Condensed gas under pressure or chilled (methane, nitrogen, chlorine, propane).
Class 3. Liquids and mixtures producing highly flammable fumes.
Class 4. Substances and materials exposed to inflammation from a spark, friction or fire and which can self-ignite in usual circumstances.
Class 5. Oxidation agents and organic peroxides. Hazardous load able to produce oxygen which sustains combustion.
