The advantages of our dangerous goods packaging at a glance
Dangerous goods packaging from DEUFOL
With us, you can choose from a variety of dangerous goods packaging to transport hazardous products, articles, substances and objects safely from A to B.
This is because dangerous goods packaging is exposed to various influences and stresses on its way to its destination. Stability and protection, therefore, have top priority. Packaging fulfils here two essential functions: It protects the contents and facilitates handling.
The packaging of dangerous goods such as solid substances as well as liquid substances have very special requirements to prevent the hazardous goods from leaking and thus protect people, animals and the environment. Dangerous goods packaging consists of different materials, is rigid or flexible and comes in different sizes. Boxes, bags, big bags, canisters, drums, IBCs, dangerous goods boxes, gas cylinders and more – we take care of the packaging research so that your items are packed safely and in accordance with the regulations.
DEUFOL only uses UN-tested packaging for your hazardous goods that meets the requirements of the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (” BAM ” for short). The dangerous goods packaging is subjected to various stress tests. If the packaging has passed these tests, we receive a type approval from the authority. The packaging is then given a special code, the “UN specification marking”, after which nothing more stands in the way of its safe journey.

DEUFOL plays it safe for you when it comes to transporting hazardous and special goods. We provide you with experienced experts for the packaging of your dangerous goods and the preparation of the corresponding documentation.

In compliance with the regulations
We provide you with high-performance packaging solutions that meet the special requirements and regulations for shipping, regardless of the mode of transport.
Legal requirements are a chapter in themselves, because the transport of dangerous goods is subject to national and international legislation and laws:
The “Gefahrgutbeförderungsgesetz” (GGBefG) applies to the transport of dangerous goods by rail, magnetic levitation train, road, water and air vehicles as well as to their packaging.
The “Gefahrgutverordnung” (GGVSEB) regulates the domestic and cross-border (including intra-Community) shipment of dangerous goods by road with vehicles and by rail with railways and inland waterway vessels.
The ADR Convention regulates the international carriage of dangerous goods by road. It contains regulations for road freight transport and the correct securing of loads as well as for the packaging and labelling of dangerous goods.
For the transport of dangerous products by sea and for the handling and stowage of cargo, the IMDG code contains internationally binding specifications.
The IATA DGR are regulations for the transport of dangerous goods in aviation. These regulations on the transport of dangerous goods are firmly anchored in the air traffic of the International Air Transport Association.

Frequently asked questions about our dangerous goods packaging:
If goods (e.g. solvents, substances, mixtures, blends or objects) are transported in the public space which, due to their natural properties or a chemical or physical condition, pose a danger to public safety and order or to the life and health of people, animals or property, they are referred to as “dangerous goods”.
The term “dangerous goods” refers only to dangerous goods that are being transported. Dangerous materials that are in use or stored are referred to as “dangerous substances”. Thus, dangerous goods and dangerous substances have an essential difference, which only refers to the interaction with the product.
DEUFOL offers you the right dangerous goods packaging for your sensitive and hazardous goods. We package dangerous goods of the most diverse classes and pay attention to the optimal protection during the transport and storage of your goods. For dangerous goods packaging, we rely on trained personnel and strictly adhere to all dangerous goods regulations such as the IMDG Code, the IATA regulations and the ADR Convention.
We are your direct contact for professional and compliant dangerous goods packaging that keeps you on the safe side.
When selecting suitable packaging for your product, the classification of the dangerous goods is necessary, because not every packaging is suitable for every dangerous good.
In addition, the transport route on which the dangerous goods are to be transported is a decisive criterion. For example, dangerous goods are packaged differently for transport by rail than for transport by air or road. Therefore, a packaging research should be carried out in order to find a suitable outer packaging.
Common types of packaging for dangerous goods are drums or barrels, canisters, boxes or cartons, containers and special combination packaging. Materials such as steel, aluminium and other metals as well as materials made of wood, cardboard, corrugated cardboard, plastic (IBC), textile fabric etc. are used for this purpose. DEUFOL has many UN-specified dangerous goods packagings ready for you.
Which packaging is suitable for a dangerous goods transport depends not only on the type of dangerous goods but also on a number of factors such as dangerous goods class and packaging group, which we take fully into account when selecting the type of packaging.
In addition, the transport route is decisive for the correct packaging as well as the legal marking & labelling of dangerous goods. DEUFOL is familiar with the use-specific requirements of dangerous goods and supports you with all applicable regulations of dangerous goods packaging.
