Our common object

Hupac takes a series of measures and precautions to reduce the risks and to improve the safety level in combined transport.


The main measures

Safety of goods

To ensure the utmost safety during rail transportation, it is essential to correctly store the goods inside the vehicles and firmly fix the hoods. Hupac provides detailed instructions and intervenes in case of need in order to guarantee maximum safety during transportation.


Dangerous goods

Hupac has put in place a centralised service specifically dedicated to this kind of transport, headed by a Dangerous Goods compliance advisor, appointed and trained according to the provisions of Directive 96/35/CE. This service deals with all aspects which ensure that traffic is carried out safely.


Terminal safety

The focus lies on the ongoing personnel training and the sensitization of terminal users regarding the rules of behaviour in force at the terminals.


Load security
Rail transport requires special precautions when stowing goods in vehicles and securing tarpaulins. Hupac provides precise instructions.
