Due to the risk posed to people and the environment, dangerous cargo cannot be treated like general cargo. It requires special handling and the workforce involved needs additional qualifications. Dangerous cargo is generally not accepted with DB SCHENKERparcel. It's also subject to general acceptance conditions applicable throughout Europe with DB SCHENKERsystem.
However, with DB SCHENKERdirect, there are no general restrictions in place. In any case, whichever of these products they choose, customers may always ask their responsible branch office for special agreements. With this policy, DB Schenker covers 98 percent of the demand for ground forwarding services for dangerous cargo.
