ADR Transport

The company DAMFIS-ŠPED d.o.o. TUZLA organizes local and international transport of dangerous goods (ADR).


Dangerous substances include substances and objects that can be a finished product, semi-finished product, intermediate, by-product, raw materials or waste, and which have the characteristics of dangerous substances, and during transport can endanger human life and health and cause environmental pollution. 

There are strictly prescribed transport rules for the transport of dangerous goods (ADR), as opposed to the classic transport of goods in international transport. International regulations on the transport of dangerous goods are amended every two years.

It is currently the 49th member of the ADR Convention.

ADR goods are defined in nine classes.

In addition to the class it owns, each ADR commodity also has its own UN number, which indicates exactly what type of ADR commodity it is.

This is prescribed by the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road and the International Regulations concerning the Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Rail.

Transport companies that, in addition to conventional transport, also transport ADR goods, must meet several conditions in order to be able to transport ADR goods in international transport.

Conditions that transport companies must meet yes would deal with the transport of ADR goods internationally are as follows:

• That the company is registered to perform the activity of transport of dangerous goods;

• To have adequate means of transport for the transport of dangerous goods;

• To have professionally qualified persons to perform transportation;

• To have a permit for the transport of dangerous goods;

• To meet the transport requirements prescribed by ADR 

• That means of transport transporting dangerous goods must be technically correct, constructed, manufactured, equipped and marked in accordance with the prescribed standards. 

Only qualified personnel can transport and handle hazardous substances.

A person engaged in the transport and handling of dangerous goods after professional training is licensed to engage in the said activities for a period of five years.

After the expiration of this period, the knowledge is re-tested, after which the license is extended for the same period.

It is very important for companies that import or need to import ADR goods in coordination with their foreign partner to provide timely and accurate information on the type of goods, packaging methods and class, and a unique UN number so that transport can be organized according to regulations without compromising human and environmental safety. 

It is also very important to obtain information from freight forwarders and state institutions (customs and ministries) whether the import of the goods in question requires special permits or some other type of documentation, as well as whether the goods are subject to border checks, sampling and the like. All this information is important both for the importer and for the transport organizer in order to organize the transport in an efficient and reliable way without producing additional and unexpected costs.
