Warehousing of dangerous goods (TDG)
The legislation poses strict requirements for the warehousing, premises and procedures related to dangerous goods. The rights that Transval holds for the large-scale warehousing of dangerous goods, such as chemicals, are based on the most comprehensive legal requirements. The rights are granted by The Finnish Safety and Chemicals Agency (Tukes). We also take care of the statutory obligations related to chemicals on behalf of our customers – we are a responsible partner in the warehousing of dangerous goods for both our customers and the entire market.
