Hazardous Goods Transport

ADR Courier Service


Hazardous Goods Transport
If you need safe, careful, time critical delivery of your hazardous goods across the UK, Hawk Couriers can ensure your needs are met. 


Our Hazardous Goods Delivery
Hazardous goods are defined as items that might cause harm to people, the environment or both if they’re not handled with care. Storing hazardous goods in one location is enough of a risk element, but complexity levels rise higher when it comes to transporting them from one place to another. 
If you need hazardous goods delivering for your business, you need to trust that your courier can properly handle these items. At Hawk Couriers, we’ll only ever assign our most trained and experienced drivers to deliver your goods. With the appropriate knowledge and training, along with years of practice in hazardous goods delivery, you can rest assured that our drivers know what they’re doing. 


What is Considered Hazardous Goods?
There is no definitive list of items that are considered hazardous, and, in fact, there are so many goods with the potential to be dangerous that any list would probably be exhaustive. Every business operation most likely involves at least several hazardous goods. If they have the potential to cause harm, they’re hazardous. 
Most commonly, the industries we encounter that require delivery of hazardous goods are in the manufacturing, oil and gas and medical sectors. The delivery of needles, flammable and toxic chemicals, medical equipment like scalpels, and materials like batteries can pose a substantial risk to our drivers and the public and are considered hazardous. 


How Hazardous Goods Delivery Works
If you’re looking for a courier to deliver your hazardous goods, the first thing to do is get in touch with us and provide us with the appropriate information for your delivery. 
We’ll need to know exactly what items require transportation to enable us to select the right delivery vehicle for you. If your goods require temperate control, for example, we can use a refrigerated van or lorry for your order. 
Once the order has been put through, we’ll send out one of our experienced hazardous goods couriers to collect the goods and securely load them into our vehicle of choice. We can work with you to ensure that your items are loaded exactly to your preferences, as well as the health and safety standards for UK transportation. 
Your driver will deliver your hazardous goods door to door, directly from one location to the next. We don’t make switchovers or unnecessary stop-offs. We understand that many hazardous goods deliveries are time critical, and we’ll aim to get your order to where it needs to be as quickly as possible. 

Throughout delivery, we’ll keep you informed of your courier’s progress through text message or email. We’ll then let you know of successful delivery when your hazardous goods are safely unloaded at your location of choice.
