Hazardous Materials

HAZARDOUS MATERIALS

ACL's Hazardous Materials Cargo Departments (HCD), complete with sophisticated information systems, provides customers with the highest level of information and compliance for the transportation of hazardous materials.

Our specially trained staff constantly stays abreast of international, national, and even local regulations affecting the transportation of hazardous cargo. With this in-house expertise, ACL is prepared to move almost all types of hazardous materials, including:

 

HAZARDOUS CARGO UPDATES
Updates on the latest hazardous information

Explosives (Class 1)
Flammable gases (Class 2.1)
non-flammable gases (Class 2.2)
toxic gases (Class 2.3)
Flammable liquids (Class 3)
Flammable solids (Class 4.1)
Spontaneous combustibles (Class 4.2)
Dangerous when wet (Class 4.3)
Oxidizing Substances (Class 5.1)
Organic Peroxides (Class 5.2)
Toxic Substances (Class 6.1)

Miscellaneous dangerous substances (Class 9)

ACL also offers customers a special program to transport very dangerous commodities, primarily radioactive and explosive materials. Special routing is often required to successfully move these cargoes. Because of the nature of these materials, ACL may require additional lead-time and extra documentation. Customer procedures for the transportation of hazardous materials are available from the Hazardous Cargo Department. These procedures can help you understand and comply with the numerous requirements and regulations governing the transport of dangerous and hazardous cargo. The procedures are continually updated as national and international regulations change.
