Non-standard and super-heavy shipments
A number of commodity groups are called super-heavy due to their unusual and very large volume and dimensions. Due to their large physical dimensions and high weight, these types of goods can not be loaded in typical containers and need special conditions and means of transportation for shipment.
The process of loading these types of cargoes is also very sensitive and requires special formalities. Large cranes and highly-specialized staff are needed to move them. In fact, the most important factor for super-heavy goods is to ensure their safe transportation, because endangering them can cause great financial and human losses. Organizations offering logistics services for super-heavy goods are able to plan and manage and provide the case properly to handle the necessary conditions with high efficiency and with high security. These types of goods can be transported by sea, land, and rail, and based on the type of cargo, distance, and destination of transportation the best method can be selected by performing the necessary calculations.
Transporting refrigerator goods
One of the specialized tasks in the transportation industry is the transportation of perishable goods such as pharmaceuticals, food products, cosmetics, and chemicals because they require storage and transportation in specific temperature conditions. Therefore, in order to transport and move these goods, special transportation vehicles with temperature control capability are needed to prevent the spoilage of products along the way and to maintain the freshness, the characteristics of the product remain constant.
Suitable equipment for transportation these types of goods are equipped with refrigeration systems that can freeze and cool the products and goods transported and are designed to minimize energy loss. These types of equipment, are capable of adjusting the temperature and humidity, these devices’ installation is in a way to prevent contamination from entering and leaving the refrigerator compartment. On the other hand, the presence of ventilation systems in refrigerated vehicles is essential to prevent the accumulation of carbon dioxide and damage to goods.
Transporting dangerous goods
Goods that are capable of endangering human health and the environment instinctively are called hazardous goods. According to the IATA International Standard, dangerous goods can be divided into 9 categories, which are:
3. Flammable liquids
4. Flammable objects
5. Oxidizing agents
6. Toxic substances
7. Radioactive materials
9. Miscellaneous hazardous substances such as substances that cause damage to the environment. For example batteries, dry ice, etc.
Each of the above categories has a specific standard for packaging that must be considered by the supplier of the product or the packaging company. Also, special rules and regulations govern the transportation of these categories of goods, because any negligence during transportation can cause irreparable damage.
Considering the points made in relation to each category of goods, we find that the transportation of specific goods, which constitute a major part of international trade, requires the knowledge and experience of a team specialized in matters related to the transportation and storage of such goods.
