Stuart Ager (DHL UK), based in Bury St Edmunds,Suffolk has been
using Hazcheck Systems since 2008. He commented, "Before
accepting dangerous goods for transport we tell our customers that
it is essential for them to contact a Dangerous Goods expert from
DHL for professional advice. Hazcheck Online
helps to ensure that our customers are shipping their dangerous
goods consignments properly. We can display key information
on any hazardous substance in the IMDG Code, check that substances
can be carried together in a container or vehicle, ensure that the
correct packaging has been used and check that the customer's
dangerous goods note is correct. The new ADR module in the
Amendment 36-12 version will help us to check the additional
requirements for road transport when goods are being shipped under
the IMDG Code rules."

forwarders and agents worldwide. It displays key information,
validates a mixed load for IMDG Code segregation compliance, and
displays relevant packaging options. A Dangerous Goods Note
