What are the laws for dangerous goods?

Dangerous goods transportation in Tasmania is regulated by the EPA. The pre-requisites for transporting hazardous goods are the duty of the consignor, operator, consignee, and driver. As a result, we take extreme care when handling and transporting dangerous goods in Tasmania and around Australia.

We go above and beyond to abide by the conditions set out as per the Australian Dangerous Goods Code. Dangerous goods refer to articles or substances with hazardous properties which can, if mismanaged. 

  • Pollute the environment
  • Burn
  • Eat metal or skin
  • Explode or make an explosive mixture
  • Asphyxiate
  • Become unstable if mixed with other chemicals or products 

Do you ship hazardous goods?

Yes, we can transport hazardous goods in Tasmania and Australia-wide. To perform our duties effectively, we require several things to transport dangerous goods legally. The shipper must supply at least the following details about the dangerous goods:

  • Name
  • UN number
  • Class and subsidiary risk
  • Number and type of packages sent
  • Quantity of goods being sent

Please note: While some restrictions exist for transporting dangerous materials, we can move classes 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9.

What is the Fuel Levy Surcharge policy?

The below information relating to our fuel levy surcharge is added to all freight rates.

Fuel Levy = ((((CF/1.1)-CR)-BF)/BF) *0.32

CF = current fuel (national average diesel price as published by AIP for each week ending of the previous month divided by the number of weeks)

 CR = diesel fuel current rebate

 BF = base fuel (when FAA started applying fuel levy; this is a net value, ex rebate and GST)

How do you charge for different shipments ?

Shipping rates or large shipments are calculated on the greater value between the shipment’s actual weight and the volumetric weight measures in kilograms.

To calculate the volumetric weight, multiply the WIDTH by the LENGTH by the HEIGHT of your shipment (in metres) by 333.

Our volumetric (or cubic) conversion factor is 333 kilograms per cubic metre. 

E.g., 0.9 * 0.6 * 0.5 * 333 = 89.91 kgs
