Do you wish to ship hazardous goods? In that case correct marking and packing are very important. This is the only way in which we can transport hazardous goods in accordance with strict legal regulations. This applies to a wide range of domestic shipments and to the shipping of hazardous goods in limited quantities (LQ) within Europe.
We have summed up for you the regulations for LQ shipping in a customer information further below at this page.
Shipping instructions: hazardous goods
All packages with contents which meet the criteria for transport in limited quantities must, since 01.01.2011, be identified with the new marking.
The existing markings (LQ or UN No. in the lozenge) are still permitted until 30.06.2015.
If standard parcel labels are used, hazardous goods parcels also have to be identified with the additional label ‘LQ with supplementary code 005’. This also applies to the use of parcel label printing programmes until these are converted to the new regulations. LQ shippers who use their own programmes for generating parcel labels must provide the legally required information in the MPSEXPDATA format.
A transfer list must also be sent to your DPD depot (fax/email) with details of the LQ shipments and weights. A copy of this must be handed to the driver.
For the legal regulations on the correct packing and further information please contact your DPD depot. Further information is available below.
