Consolidation / Full Loads:

Dangerous Goods:

Various commodities are classified as dangerous or hazardous, and require special conditions for their acceptance of cartage.

All hazardous goods require special conditions for their acceptance of cartage.

All hazardous goods require special declaration, which can only be prepared by the sender. Any goods, which qualify as dangerous or hazardous, must be brought to the attention of Milehams Logistics so that the necessary warning labels can accompany the shipment.
