    What to do on arrival

    All dangerous goods must be declared and accompanied with paperwork, unless transported in Limited Quantities.

    The process is fast and efficient, so to avoid any unnecessary delays it is essential that all paperwork is legible and always includes the following information:

    • UN number
    • Current ADR references (Class, Packing Group & Classification Code, if required)
    • Proper Shipping Name of goods carried (including their volume or weight)
    • Details of packaging (number and description)
    • Quantity (net / gross mass as appropriate)

    Prior to the vehicle’s arrival, customers must ensure that their driver has the full dangerous goods declaration.

    At the Freight Driver Centres

    Drivers will be 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.
