Chemicals and dangerous goods

For over 25 years, leading chemical industry companies have entrusted us with the import and export shipment of their chemical products, through dedicated, high quality services.

International shipment of chemical products: Avion’s reliability.

Preserve the integrity of chemical products from packaging to destination: those working in the chemical industry select their shipping provider with great care.

The prevention of critical issues that can jeopardize goods transportation is a feature of all of our international shipments. However, it is especially important when handling chemical substances.

That’s why it’s necessary to provide a customized service. We manage international shipments by air, by ocean and by road of finished chemicals and substances, dangerous, flammable and IMO classified goods, and all other goods referenced by international ADR stand (Accord Dangereuses Route).

In March 2023 we achieved the prestigious ISO 9001:2015 certification for our Italian headquarters in Peschiera Borromeo (MI).

We rely on certified partners with large, temperature-controlled warehouses (+15 to -35°C) and special packing, considering the stresses that chemicals can be exposed to during the journey.

On request, we support customers in preparing the documents requested for the air, sea and road transport of dangerous goods, such as Shipper’s Declarations required for air freight and Multimodal IMO Declarations, required for sea freight.

A multimodal shipping service, combining air with sea or land transport, allows us to work flexibly and guarantee agreed delivery times. Avion’s network of professionals, thanks to different partners located at strategic international traffic hubs, is a further reason for our customers in the chemical industry to entrust us with even the most complex and urgent international shipments of chemical products.
