How to properly package dangerous goods so that they arrive safely and do not harm the environment?
Firstly, it should be noted that there is a special classification of dangerous substances and items in legislation. Its application helps with the identification of this or that load, and thus the selection of the correct packaging and mode of transport.
Packaging requirements When packaging dangerous goods for air transport Cargo must be carefully packaged individually, the packaging method must consider the efficient use of space in the aircraft cabin considering the characteristics of the cargo, and in general the packaging must protect the cargo from three groups of external influences: Mechanical (Climatic); Biological criteria (e.g. weather); Physical (e.g. weather); Physical (e.g. air pollution). In total there are three packing groups (1, 2, 3) for the transport of high, medium and low risk dangerous goods respectively. The means of transport of dangerous goods are individual and combined packaging.
Individual packaging are individual containers for one unit of cargo, and gaskets are placed inside them to prevent breakage and leakage of the cargo during delivery. Combination packaging are packaging units in which individual packaging are grouped into some packaging. For additional safety and space optimisation on board, dangerous goods can be placed in additional outer packaging.
