Hazardous Collection/Delivery Service now available at our Eastleigh Depot

Part of the 'added value' services currently on offer, throughout the nine other Freightroute Depot's, is our ability to handle freight that is designated to be of a Hazardous nature (ADR). This includes consignments (Palletised Freight only) also deemed to be 'Limited Quantity'.

Following our internal ADR training programmes for both warehouse and driving staff and fitting out our vehicles with the necessary ADR response equipment, we are delighted to be able to offer our Freightroute Eastleigh customers a collection/delivery service that includes freight of an ADR / Hazourdous nature.

If we may be of any assistance in handling your ADR freight, please do not hesitate to contact our Sales Administration team on 0800 1584401.

Our ability to handle ADR related products is dependent upon (i) The safety, packaging and presentation of your freight, (ii) The correct and clear labelling for either Limited Quantity or full Adr classification of your goods, and (iii) The quality of information on your delivery paperwork. All must be fully compliant with the laws governing the carriage of this freight by road. Please view the 'Our Services' section for more information on our ADR delivery service.

We can also offer deliveries of ADR products to Ireland, Channel Islands, IOM, IOW and most Scottish Offshore Islands. This freight is governed by the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDGC) and as such needs to be accompanied by a fully completed IMDG note.

We welcome the opportunity to work with you on palletised freight that most hauliers run a mile from!
