Shipping Hazardous Materials
Transport your hazardous cargo
As a shipping company, RS Group understands the importance of handling hazardous materials with care. Hazardous materials are substances or materials that pose a potential risk to health, safety, or the environment. These materials can include chemicals, gases, flammable liquids, radioactive materials, and explosives. It is crucial to properly identify and classify hazardous materials before shipping them to ensure that they are packaged, labeled, and transported safely.
Our team is trained to handle hazardous materials and follows all regulations set forth by the Department of Transportation to ensure that these materials are transported safely and efficiently. At RS Group, we take pride in our ability to handle hazardous materials with the utmost care and attention to detail.
LTL and FTL Hazardous Shipping
When it comes to shipping hazardous materials, there are two main methods: LTL (Less Than Truckload) and FTL (Full Truckload).
Ultimately, the decision between LTL and FTL for hazardous materials shipping will depend on the specific needs and priorities of the shipper. Regardless of the method chosen, it's crucial to follow all regulations and guidelines to ensure the safety of both the shipment and those involved in the transportation process. With that said, we ship hazardous materials on LTL and FTL.
