    What is ADR and RID

    ADR (formally, the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR) is since 1957 United Nations treaty that governs transnational transport of hazardous materials.

    RID is the European agreement for the transport of dangerous goods by railway, and mainly in accordance with the ADR rules and regulations.

This article states that with the exception of certain exceptionally dangerous materials, hazardous materials may in general be transported internationally in wheeled vehicles, provided that two sets of conditions be met:


    Annex A

    regulates the merchandise involved, notably their packaging and labels.

    Annex B

A large proportion of its weight is supported either by a road tractor or by a detachable front axle assembly known as a dolly. A semi-trailer is normally equipped with legs, called "landing gear", which can be lowered to support it when it is uncoupled.

    Trailers are availabe as flat, with taupolin or with container-locks.
    Specially for the transport of Tankcontainer are trailers which ends with a construction to keep possible spillage on connection/disconnection of tubes for loading or unloading. This is a safety for enviroment.

gft-umweltfreundliche Erdgas-Beheizung


November 2018

Conversion of coal and oil heating to environmentally friendly natural gas for the heating of containers and offices in the Gebze terminal.

After long preparations, a new heating system for the heating of tank containers with natural gas could be put into operation in Gebze.

For this purpose, the entire associated infrastructure had to be set up and a separate supply line for natural gas laid.

At the same time, a new building for gas heating was built and the heating capacity almost doubled. The use of environmentally friendly natural gas has significantly improved the environmental footprint. The coal heating is now held only as a reserve for any failures.
