How are chemicals transported?

One of the most sensitive types of transportation because of the type of materials being moved from one place to another is the transportation of chemical substances. Their potential toxicity to people and the environment means that this type of logistical operation, whether by land, air or sea, requires more care and attention than other types of shipments.

The transport of chemicals is classified depending on the chemical and the risk involved in inappropriate handling or an unintentional accident. There is a list of categories included in the IMO classification, including explosive substances, gases, flammable liquids and solids, organic peroxides, oxidizers and other substances.

At Logisber we are experts in the transportation of chemical products and substances. Our extensive experience in this type of logistics guarantees our customers that the goods are moved safely and in compliance with the regulations established and in force at local, regional and international level.

In addition, in general and for this type of transport in particular, it is essential to know how each chemical substance must be labelled, both for transit in special trucks by road, by train, or by container ship or aircraft. Another important aspect is to attach the necessary documentation to meet customs requirements in the case of international transport.
