WHAT WE’VE DONE
Today, using of fertilizers is an integral part of the process of growing plants, improving soil quality, protecting plants from pests and more. With fertilizers volume of produced agricultural production can be significantly increased, so transportations of this type of cargo are fairly popular among our customers.
Transportation of fertilizer is a complex process that requires a great attention to every stage of transportation and professional approach to all related details.
Storage, transportation and using of fertilizers in agriculture are carried out in accordance with the rules of transportation of dangerous goods by road.
Corcel has supplied its own truck for loading fertilizers at sender` stock. Particular attention was paid to the vehicle’s trailer – it was clean and dry. Also, according to the Rules of transportation, we picked up the car with a tarpaulin to prevent dusting.
Loading of the goods was carried out by the customer. Fertilizers were already packed, that facilitated our task to ensure the safe transportation. In that case our driver was responsible for the loading process, securing and distribution of the cargo weight on vehicle axles.
Our team previously has prepared all necessary documents for customs clearance. Certificate EUR-1 was needed for importing of agricultural fertilizers to Ukraine. Corcel company is a specialist in all the nuances of customs clearance, so all commodity-accompanying documents were prepared in advance and in full accordance with customs regulations.
We have set one of the most experienced drivers to provide transportation of the cargo in the right speed mode. When transporting this type of cargo it is very important to secure the cargo so it was not damaged into the vehicle. The chosen route has allowed us to deliver the goods on time and to reduce the cost of the customer.
