Dangerous Goods


Transport and rules

The transport of dangerous classified materials is regulated by agreements and conventions which, based on instructions from international bodies, such as the UN, establish the basic rules on the safety of the transport of dangerous materials concerning the following aspects:

– definition and classification of dangerous goods in classes;
– packaging and labeling of dangerous materials;
– transport equipment;
– handling of dangerous goods;
– admission and exclusion to the transport of certain dangerous goods.

The transport of goods classified as dangerous requires greater competence and knowledge, due to the potential damage that the goods themselves can cause to people and things. We want to be at your side in all phases, from preparation to transport in order to ensure greater protection for the goods being transported.

The compatibility of different goods classified as dangerous in the context of transport is conventionally reproduced through tables that configure the possible coexistence of different dangerous goods within the same means of transport.
The table below shows the compatibility between the various classes of dangerous goods.
Since the properties of the substances, materials or objects within each class can vary considerably, the dangerous goods list must always be consulted for special provisions and, in the event of a conflict of provisions, these prevail over the general provisions. The separation also takes into account a single subsidiary risk label.

The UN recommendations made it possible to draw up international regulations for all modes of transport of hazardous materials, which are:


RID (Reglement concernant les transport international ferroviaires des marchandises dangereuses), relativa al trasporto ferroviario di merci pericolose.


ADR (Accord europeen relatif au transport international des merchandises dangereuses par route – European agreement concerning the international carriage of dangerous good by road), acuerdo que regula el transporte de mercancías peligrosas por carretera, válido a partir del 1 de julio de 2013.


IMDG (International maritime dangerous goods code) y MARPOL (International convention for the prevention of pollution from ships), regulan el transporte marítimo de mercancías peligrosas.


ICAO (Tecnical instructions for the safe transport of dangerous goods by air), contiene le norme relative al trasporto aereo delle merci pericolose.


ADN riguarda il trasporto in acque interne di merci pericolose.
