Documents for bookings of dangerous goods transports:
When transporting dangerous goods, the driver must always contact the ForSea Freight check-in staff. This also applies to transports with dangerous goods in limited quantities (LQ). The cargo must be labelled in accordance with the IMDG Code. All required documentation has to be provided by the shipper.
When transporting LQ dangerous goods with ForSea Ferries, it is not necessary to provide written documentation on the goods upon check-in in port. However, the driver has to indicate that the cargo contains LQ dangerous goods. The information that needs to be provided is: UN number + class + weight. The driver must sign the dangerous goods declaration, confirming that the cargo is packed in accordance with the applicable regulations. The vehicle must be marked with orange dangerous goods signs both at the front and at the rear during the crossing. For transports with LQ dangerous goods no surcharge will apply on the price.
ForSea operates an efficient ferry route with the following five vessels in service: M/V Aurora, M/V Tycho Brahe, M/V Hamlet, M/V Mercandia IV and M/V Mercandia VIII. ForSea has initiated the introduction of battery operation on the two ferries M/V Tycho Brahe and M/V Aurora to further reduce the ferries’ environmental impact.
