Transportation of Dangerous Goods

DANX accepts only certain selected types and amounts of dangerous goods, and only when the conditions have been clarified and signed in the transport agreement/contract. To ensure sufficient identification of dangerous goods all customers must answer whether their shipments contain dangerous goods, or not. This also applies to dangerous goods in limited and excepted quantities or dangerous goods which is not subject to the current regulation according to other specific and special exemption provisions. The exact cause, e.g. “Dangerous Goods in limited quantities”, or the current special Provision number or other exact § or chapter number must be stated.

It is of utmost importance that our customers provide us with the complete and correct information about any dangerous goods to be carried and that all routines between us as participants are described in the contract.

Reducing emissions from the shipping sector - EU ETS

The inclusion of CO2 emissions from large ships entering EU ports is a significant aspect of the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS), aimed at a substantial reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

Effective January 1st 2024, ferry companies are now required to account for their CO2 emissions on each crossing. To facilitate a seamless transition, ferry operators are mandated to allocate allowances for a portion of their emissions during an initial phase-in period:

- 2024: 40% of their emissions

- 2025: 70% of their emissions

- 2026: 100% of their emissions

Source: Reducing emissions from the shipping sector - European Commission (europa.eu)

This directive stems from the European Commission's initiative aimed at reducing emissions from the shipping sector.

The resultant additional cost will impact all customers whose transportation involves sea routes. Owing to cost fluctuations from ferry operators, the calculation and invoicing of the ETS surcharge will be performed retrospectively. For instance, costs incurred in January will be invoiced in February.

The additional cost currently set at:

Minimum 0,40€ per consolidated shipment
0,003€ per kg
FTL 16,00€ (13,6 ldm)

Minimum 0,50€ per consolidated shipment
0,004€ per kg
FTL 25,00€ (13,6 ldm)

Minimum 0,10€ per consolidated shipment
0,001€ per kg
FTL 4,50€ (13,6 ldm)
