We will help you with hazardous goods

Hazardous goods is a collective term for substances and objects that have characteristics where they can cause injury to people, the environment or property if they are not properly handled during transport.
At DB Schenker, we have extensive experience transporting approved hazardous goods. For these transports we follow the regulations that exist.

If you need more information to be able to package, label and document your goods, information is available from the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency. You are of course welcome to contact us if you have questions.
