Hazardous Cargo

When it comes to transporting hazardous cargo, you need a shipping partner with the experience and expertise required to get it safely to its destination. That is why so many people choose to ship their hazardous cargo with us.

Hazardous cargo includes shipments that pose a danger to life, property or the environment, such as flammable, explosive, corrosive or toxic items and materials.

Naturally, these cargoes need to be handled with extreme care. The shipping process requires special expertise, tried-and-tested procedures and a sophisticated infrastructure. We work closely with you throughout to ensure your hazardous cargo is shipped safely and efficiently from origin to destination.

Better shipping with your hazardous cargo team
Because no two hazardous cargoes are the same, every shipment is dealt with on an individual basis by our team of experts, who will ensure that your shipment complies with statutory regulations.

Your Safmarine hazardous cargo team will assess the specific requirements of your shipment to ensure we have the correct people, equipment and procedures in place, including en route contingency plans if necessary. They will ensure your shipment meets all local and global legal, safety and environmental requirements – and that it’s shipped securely.

Or, to put it another way, you can trust us to ensure your hazardous cargo reaches its destination safely and on schedule.
