The security of your cargo is of utmost importance to us.  DB Schenker USA is considered a forerunner in cargo security through its use of initiatives such as AAMS (Advanced Manifest System). Similar rules are in place in other countries such as Australia, Mexico and India and China.

We offer a wide-array of supply-chain security solutions in order to protect your cargo during both warehousing and transport. No matter where your cargo is located or headed; we can offer suitable security solutions on a global level.

Due to the risk posed to people and the environment, dangerous cargo cannot be treated like general cargo.  Dangerous goods can include anything from hazardous materials to explosives. Special care must be taken when shipping dangerous freight to insure the safety not only of the shipment, but that of the carrier, warehouse and dockworkers and the general public.

Dangerous goods are classified according to various sets of regulations, including:

  • ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air
  • TDGR (Transport of Dangerous Goods Regulations) as prescribed by the Dangerous Goods Transportation Act (1992).

We have therefore designed our transport solutions in such a manner as to ensure that your hazardous cargo arrives at its destination safely. There are many things you need to pay attention to when you ship hazardous materials. The various hazardous goods classifications require different types of transport precautions to be taken. In addition, senders, packagers, and shippers have to comply with numerous regulations.

All DB Schenker offices employ dangerous-cargo specialists who can help you manage the complexity involved with such transports. They’ll be happy to advise you on dangerous cargo transport options and inform you about any special provisions or exceptions that may apply to your products. We also manage all documentation (IMO declarations) and consignment tracking operations for you.

All DB Schenker employees involved with the shipment of hazardous goods are highly trained and possess the specialist knowledge needed to ensure compliance with all relevant safety regulations. An automation-supported processing system provides access to data on hazardous goods shipments during every phase of the transport process, thereby guaranteeing that your cargo will get to its destination without incident.

Play it safe, our experts accurately manage customs processes at origin and destination to ensure flawless operations and to avoid delays and costs.

DB Schenker’s experts around the globe can help you make sense of it all and ensure accurate customs services in accordance with the latest regulatory requirements.  In the USA, Schenker, Inc. is a licensed customs broker, as a corporation, and has offered customs brokerage services since 1976.  In addition to our national permit, customs broker permits are on file with customs for 24 branch offices with additional support from a nationwide network.

Our focus is to have the correct product information at the right time to ensure efficiency and compliance.  We have the competence to help you deal with the most complex international trade rules and regulations.
