Red Funnel Ferries have considerable experience in handling and shipping dangerous cargoes that are permitted on Passenger Vehicle Ferries
We can legally transport by sea classes 1-9, subject to restrictions, and offer freight-only sailings for prohibited substances such as bulk petrol and propane.
Staff are experienced with the Regulations applying to the movement of dangerous goods by sea and fully qualified DGSA's are employed.
The ferry terminals are spacious with dedicated hard-standing for hazardous loads. Any vehicle that can pass under a motorway bridge can be accommodated. None of the vehicle ferries are fitted with a centre-casing to restrict the manoeuverability of freight vehicles and service reliability and punctuality is unmatched.
To ship dangerous goods by sea we need the following information 24hrs prior to shipment, as this needs to be declared to the Harbour Authorities and cleared for shipment.
- UN Number
- Class of Goods
- Net Weight
- Gross Weight
- Type of Packaging + Packaging Group
- Proper Shipping Name
- Flashpoint (if applicable)
To comply with The Merchant Shipping (Dangerous Goods And Marine Pollutants) Regulations 1990, Dangerous, Toxic and/or Hazardous Loads must be declared at the time of booking and on Consignment Notes completed at check-in. A Dangerous Goods Declaration Note must also be Completed Prior to Shipment.Finding us in Southampton Finding us in East Cowes
