Our additional services for your road transport

In addition to organising the transport, handling and storage of your road freight, we can provide you with a wide range of additional services that complement your specific needs and add value along your supply chain.


Overview of our additional services

Dangerous goods

Safety and security come first

With our own Dangerous Goods Officers in key sites, we train our employees in how to handle dangerous items, monitor the transport operation and ensure compliance with the national and international dangerous goods directives. We are able to provide evidence of the safety and quality of our services using the Safety & Quality Assessment System (SQAS).

Rhenus Ireland also operate its own DG fleet supporting national distribution of classes 2, 3,4,5,6 and 9 products for a broad range of industries.

SQAS is a standard established by the European Chemical Industry Council. It assesses the quality, safety and environmental compatibility of logistics specialists, both for transporting hazardous items and for establishing specific quality standards for storing and transporting chemicals. In Ireland, strategically selected Rhenus branches are SQAS certified. Our services include the following:

  • Dangerous goods (ADR)
  • Excepted quantities (EQ)
  • Limited quantities (LQ)
  • Temperature-controlled transport

Transport insurance

We act on your behalf

The liability of freight forwarders is regulated by law and limited for international goods. If any damage or loss occurs, the compensation amount is usually significantly lower than the actual value of the goods. Other exemptions from liability often apply as well.

We therefore recommend additional insurance protection in order to prevent any costs being incurred in cases of damage or loss.

We can offer you various cost-effective solutions for this and are here to establish contact with our insurance partner for you:

  • “All risks” insurance
  • Tailored transport insurance policies
  • Taking out insurance for each consignment or on a long-term basis
