General and hazardous chemical solutions
One of the UK bulk road transport that we work in is the chemicals sector. We currently provide both fully managed logistics solutions and single ‘spot’ product movements for manufacturers working with a wide range of hazardous and non-hazardous chemicals and other highly sensitive products, including but not limited to:
Working with speciality chemicals requires the adherence to rigorous best practices for the safety of our team, the general public, and the environment. This is why we require all of our drivers to be ADR certified and trained to the highest standards.
It also requires careful storage and handling of our customers’ products so that volatile, corrosive, or otherwise easily destabilised chemicals retain their characteristics following transport.
Bulk Chemical Road Transport
Our chemical transport fleet is extensive, including GP, rubber-lined, multi-compartment, and lagged tanks. This means we are equipped to transport many chemical types such as hazardous, non-hazardous, solvents, acids, alkalis, and aromatics.
All of our tankers executing dangerous goods transport are equipped with trained drivers and a suite of technology that can either be managed in-cab or remotely to protect the integrity of our customers’ products.
One such piece of technology is our tank heating solution. If our customers have products that need to remain at a certain temperature or be heated during or after transport, then they can rest assured knowing that a member of our team is monitoring the temperature of their goods during transit and can instantly make remote changes to the temperature if required.
Our team, including our drivers, carry out risk assessments before loading or discharging a product, and are continually trained in the handling of chemicals and other dangerous goods according to the ADR through refresher sessions, audits, and the Ryder Marsh OCAID.
