      Dangerous goods registration, UN number and dangerous goods classes

      For the transport of dangerous goods, we require the UN number and the net quantity of the substance in liters or kilograms. Attention, exception! For batteries, the gross weight must be indicated instead of the net weight.

      In addition, the packaging must be visibly marked as dangerous goods and classified in the appropriate dangerous goods class. This is the only way to ensure proper handling during the transport of dangerous goods and proper storage of the dangerous goods in the truck.

      Marking for the transport of dangerous goods

      The marking of the packaging material in the case of transport of dangerous goods with a forwarding agent is carried out with a danger label and a UN number. The UN number is a substance number that allows unique identification of the dangerous goods. The danger label is a label that must be attached to the goods and differs depending on the class of dangerous goods. We can provide you with the danger label upon request.
