A standard semi trailer has a capacity of 13,6 cargo meters (cargo meter = one meter per vehicle when its entire width is used), or rather 90 cubic meters (cbm). In the system of full truck load transportation (road transport), customers may also choose from delivery vans, solos and large volume units, where the capacity is lower/higher. GTL is a specialist in transportation to/from Turkey, Greece, Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, FYROM, Moldova, the Western Balkan countries and Cyprus.
According to the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR), the international transportation of dangerous goods is allowed only if all of the conditions for transportation are fulfilled. These are primarily: appropriate packaging and labeling of the transported goods, the structure, operation and equipment of the vehicles transporting the dangerous cargo and driver training.
According to the ADR, dangerous goods are divided into 13 classes:
Class 1 - Explosive materials and substances
Class 2 - Gases
Class 3 - Flammable liquids
Class 4.1 - Flammable solids, Self-reactive substances, polymerizing substances and solid desensitized explosive
Class 4.2 - Spontaneously combustible solids or liquids
Class 4.3 - Dangerous when wet
Class 5.1 - Oxidizing agents
Class 5.2 - Organic peroxides
Class 6.1 - Toxic substances
Class 6.2 - Infectious substances
Class 7 - Radioactive materials
Class 8 - Corrosives
Class 9 - Miscellaneous
GTL offers the transportation of all dangerous goods except for classes 1 and 7 and fulfills all of the ADR conditions. It also transports subclass 1.4 S (e.g. entertainment pyrotechnics). The sender is obligated to prepare the shipment in accordance with these regulations, i.e. it must be correctly packaged, labelled and accompanied with the appropriate transportation documents – safety papers.
To answer customers’ questions, GTL offers consultation services (depending on the range of the agreed services either for a fee or as part of the haulage price). Contact a GTL safety consultant: Mrs. Romana Hampacherova, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also provide some types of transport to and from Kosovo, Albania and Montenegro.
