ADR Transport for all ADR classes!

Rainbow Logistics & Solutions B.V. is the transport company specialized in the transport of dangerous goods (ADR). ADR stands for “Accord européen relatif au transport international de marchandises Dangereuses par Route”. The ADR is the pan-European convention for the international carriage of dangerous goods by road.

The ADR is established under the supervision of the United Nations. The ADR includes requirements about, among other things:

  • Dangerous Goods Hazard Classification Criteria.
  • Conditions of carriage.
  • Packaging and tanks.
  • Shipping procedures, including labeling and documentation.

According to ADR, dangerous substances and goods must be classified on the basis of their hazardous properties. The classification is the basis for the transport conditions. Criteria for the ADR classification are based on the Globally Harmonized System of classification and labeling of chemicals (GHS). In addition to transport, these criteria are also used for production, storage and use.
