ZIM specializes in carrying DG (Dangerous Goods) shipments safely and according to the IMDG Code (international regulations) and local regulations.
Transporting Dangerous Cargo requires the highest amount of expertise in the market. We gained this experience during decades of transporting all kinds of Dangerous cargo in Dry Vans, IsoTanks, Reefers and other kinds of special equipment. We have special offices dedicated to help and guide you through the various stages of transporting your DG cargo.
Each DG booking is closely checked before accepting for loading on board. In order to enable us to give you our best service we need to receive from you all the required information and the relevant documentation.
The DG booking will be accepted only if it complies with ZIM policy, as well as IMDG and local regulations.
