DG precautions and operating procedures

Tianjin Port dangerous occurrence yard caught fire and exploded, resulting in many casualties. The accident occurred so alas, in silence to pray for the dead and wounded at the same time, as the freight forwarding practitioners, but also need to learn notes on dangerous goods, dangerous goods when received in strict accordance with the operating procedures to prevent accidents ʱ?? Here, we take a look at operational procedures and precautions regarding dangerous goods.

The definition of dangerous goods
Where the corrosive nature, naturalness, flammable, poisonous, explosive, etc., in transportation, handling and storage storage process likely to cause personal injury and property damage and items in need of special protection, are dangerous.

DG Overview
1-9 classes of dangerous goods sub total nine categories for a class: Explosion class; II: compressed gases; three categories: Flammable liquid; four categories: Flammable solids; five categories: oxidants and peroxides; six categories: toxic; seven categories: radioactive; eight categories: Corrosion class; nine categories: miscellaneous and marine pollutants.

Inquiry dangerous goods
First, we received a customer inquiry. We have to ask the name, the level of danger, UN coding is how much? Of course, container type, port, etc. are required. UN's Chinese name is the United Nations dangerous goods codes, a total of four digits from 0004-3506. This is based on the 2012 version IMDG come.

Why should you know UN? Because the boat companies offer sea freight is determined in accordance with UN. Some products are Class 2, Class 2.1 are even, but UN is not the same as the price difference is enormous. Give a very common example: 2.1 class 2.1 class lighters and refrigerants shipping a big difference. When these are clear, basically you can inquire up.

Booking dangerous goods
What booking to provide? Common are MSDS and Wei Bao (or pot seized), cargo transport testimonial issued by the authority, the battery category of goods also need to provide test reports.

Let's explain what is MSDS? MSDS is the first four letters of the alphabet letter Material Safety Data Sheet. MSDS actually resume a cargo of the same document, it is not particularly important, but it allows us to easily know the product. So when the customer did not know when you can let UN to provide MSDS, in item 14 there. Remember that shipping companies identified only 16, the English version.

Model of pot seized with the crisis package
These two documents are the same kind of nature, according to the case goods, just provide one. Usually large cylinder class is to provide pot seized; other categories are dangerous package, the size of the refrigerant cans jars also provide crisis package.

When booking these provide full, basically there is no problem, Also note the point: Hazards data must provide net, gross and net weight and keep the crisis package as above. Quantity of dangerous goods are not allowed to change, so be careful when filling.

Pot seized is not the performance of a single package, performance alone is made of packages of the crisis. Figuratively, such as your goods packaging corrugated box. You have to provide the performance of a single cardboard box, CCIB will be based on your performance of a single crisis package single issue, a lot of the inside doorway.

Get the care books and data can be booking up. After booking we want to provide a dangerous goods data. After the dangerous goods information, it is waiting for approval of the port of destination. This process takes about 2-3 business days. After approval by the port of destination must put the warehouse. Here we should pay attention to the next, sometimes the port of destination did not approve of the positions, you still could not walk; you must ensure that the port of destination approved by it, and also have positions.

Loading dangerous goods
After allowing the warehouse is loading the trailer. Here we must note is that, firstly, the car must be a dangerous operation qualification of the fleet; second, loading must be installed in accordance with the requirements of the Maritime Administration. Dangerous goods are the need of monitoring equipment, monitoring equipment harbor superintendency who need to receive professional training, and monitoring equipment to obtain a certificate after passing an examination. All second category of dangerous goods to advanced warehouse. Other categories can be directly into the port, the car into the harbor maritime declaration has basically been completed.

Here to explain what is under the boat straight travel directly loaded, these two are the same concept, meaning that the second category must not be stacked in the dock and other boats to dock directly hanging from the car directly to the board. This process requires the team arranged.

After the declaration is declared finished, customs and general cargo makes no difference, because regardless of Customs is not dangerous goods, customs declaration documents as long as the HS code provided above the line. After completion report and other sail off to sit, signed the bill of lading. The following procedure is the same.

Jarry something to say:
