Dangerous goods

The Channel Tunnel has been designed to be one of the safest transport systems. However, like other forms of transport, it allows the carriage of a wide variety of goods classified as 'dangerous', subject to strict regulations.

Eurotunnel Freight account holders can download Eurotunnel's ADR policy using online services or simply access ADR information via our online guide.

This allows customers to make sure that any dangerous goods being carried adhere to the conditions of travel. If you are not an account holder and you would like information on travelling with dangerous goods with Eurotunnel or if you would like to order an electronic copy of the practical guide, please contact our Freight Commercial Department.

At no extra cost, your vehicles can carry ADR regulated goods in accordance with Eurotunnel's policy. It is therefore essential to be aware of a few simple rules:

arrowOn arrival at our terminals, ADR goods must be declared at the Check-in kiosks.

arrowThe process is fast and efficient, so to avoid any unnecessary delays please ensure that your paperwork is legible and always includes the following information:

  • Product name
  • Gross and net weight
  • UN Number
  • ADR references
    (class, packing group, classification group)

arrowAt the Freight Driver Centres, drivers are issued a "DG" sticker. It is important that it is displayed in the vehicles' windscreens at all times as they are positioned on the freight shuttles accordingly. Failure to do so will result in delays for both your own loads and other customers' as all the vehicles will need to be exited from the shuttle and re-positioned.
