Transporting hazardous goods safely

The new hazardous goods container by SSI SCHAEFER meets the special safety requirements for transporting solid dangerous substances.

Dangerous substances are included in all kinds of products and are used in different sectors of industry. Transporting hazardous goods in a warehouse, either for further processing or to the customer, poses challenges for logistics because it is unsafe. In compliance with all guidelines and safety claims, packaging must protect the stored goods and facilitate optimum handling in the material flow at the same time. The new hazardous goods container by SSI SCHAEFER meets these requirements, combining safety with efficient handling.

Hazardous goods refer to substances that pose risks of fire or explosion. For example, in the automotive industry they are found in airbag systems, belt reels, retractors and anchor pretensioners. Such products can be found in every car, truck and the increasingly popular electric cars, and must be handled with special care during transportation.

Strict regulations are in place to prevent risks when transporting hazardous goods. Special containers made for this task feature increased stability and a locking mechanism, greatly reducing risks during transportation. They are subject to strict regulations and, after thorough, successful testing, are officially approved as suitable containers and marked with a UN label.

“The new hazardous goods container by SSI SCHAEFER combines safety with optimized and sustainable handling. The RL-KLT GGV was developed to meet the requirements of hazardous goods transportation, and fits smoothly into existing logistics processes,” explains Jörg Vicktorius, project manager for hazardous goods packaging at SSI SCHAEFER.
