Transport of
dangerous goods: we have
been amongst the first ones in Italy.

Since 1997, our Dangerous Goods Distribution Department
has been a key asset in Arco Spedizioni.
Thanks to our expertise and
specialization, we are the main
national operators in this field.

Dangerous goods.

We do multimodal transport of dangerous goods of all classes (apart from classes 1, 6, 2 and 7) on national and international territory, using vehicle specially equipped and with drivers with ADR license.

The operators of our supply chain are trained and constantly updated about the correct management of dangerous goods in accordance with the transportation regulations ADR 2021.

Our Regulatory Office, entirely devoted to the management of dangerous goods, monitors the compliance of shipments checking the suitability of the packaging, all labeling operations and the accuracy of transport documents. Working with maritime carriers and Port Authorities, the Office draws up the declaration of dangerous goods addressed to islands following the segregation criteria to guarantee the safeness of multimodal transportation and the compliance with the rules inserted in the 39th IMDG Code and in the Executive Decree 303/14.

With the aim to offer the highest level in professional and competence skills we cooperate proactively with trade associations and representative associations meant for chemical manufacturers and carriers. In fact we are associated with Aispec – the National Association for fine chemical companies and specialized sectors – and with S.E.T. Emergency Transport Service of Federchimica, to promote the sustainable development of the chemical manufacturing and supply chain.

We pay particular attention to the continuous changes of regulations and we organize periodically free training and refresher courses about ADR transportation for our customers in order to share and spread the proper shipping practice for road and sea transportation in complete safeness and punctuality.
