What does ADR stand for in logistics?

ADR, short for “Accord Dangereux Routier,” refers to European regulations governing the international transportation of hazardous materials by road. Established as a UN treaty in 1957, the ADR has been regularly updated to align with the evolving rules and regulations within the logistics industry.

Classification of Dangerous Goods:

Within the scope of ADR, dangerous goods are categorized into nine distinct classes, each governing the transportation of specific hazardous materials. To aid in identifying these hazardous substances, articles, or items, a unique UN Number consisting of four digits is assigned to each class.

At the rear of a truck, it is possible to know whether or not the truck is transporting dangerous goods and what kind of goods they are.
