UN packaging for global transportations

When dangerous goods are being handled and transported their packaging needs to be safe and appropriately certified.

The UN packagings of our selection are approved by VTT (Technical Research Centre of Finland) and they meet the requirements on UN approval concerning transport packagings of the types 4D or 4 DV for dangerous goods. The package can, thus, be used for transport over land, rail, sea, and air internationally.

The certified packagings may be used as external packaging for materials of packaging groups I, II ja III. The dangerous goods being packed can be various kinds of solid or liquid goods.
