2024 Report on the Safe Transport of International Export Goods

2024-06-13 09:11

A number of industry bodies have recently developed guidelines on the transport of dangerous goods in an effort to reduce accidents caused by improper packaging or handling of goods in sea, port or inland transport. This guideline classifies dangerous goods into three main categories of hazards: fire and explosion hazards, risk of leakage, and risk of improper packaging. In particular, it is emphasized that these goods are more likely to pose a hazard if they are declared incorrectly or if their identity information is incomplete.

1. Fire and explosion hazards

These goods can catch fire and explode under certain conditions, causing significant damage and casualties, and are often governed by dangerous goods regulations. Typical examples include: carbon/charcoal, calcium hypochlorite, lithium batteries, cotton and wool, fishmeal and krill, seed cake.

2. Risk of leakage

These goods, if improperly packed or damaged, can leak, endanger the health of the clean-up personnel and contaminate the environment. For example: hides, wine, bitumen, cocoa butter, waste engines and engine parts, vegetable oils and other oils, especially those in flexible containers.

3. Risk of improper packaging

Improper packing or fixation of goods inside a container may result in injury to persons or damage to nearby containers, property, or other cargo. Such accidents can lead to serious accidents at sea or on land, such as truck rollovers and train derailments, such as logs and timber, steel coils, marble and granite.
