Gas measurements and degassing.
Moths, cockroaches, beetles, mites and other pests; they are the terror of every shipper. Without protective measures, cargoes in containers can fall victim to these unwanted guests, causing massive damage. In addition, many countries ban the import of life forms that can threaten the ecosystem. To prevent unwanted invaders as much as possible, certain gases are often used. The use of these gases is subject to strict regulations. It must remain safe for people and the environment. That is why we support our customers with so-called gas measurements and the natural or forced degassing of their containers.
Every shipper's anxiety was handled professionally.
When a gas measurement?
Customs requires that all containers that undergo a customs inspection (fyco or physical inspection) also undergo an inspection for the presence of gas. In addition to this Customs requirement, we consider the safety of your colleagues and ours to be equally important. After all, we want to provide them with a safe and environmentally friendly working environment. On this basis, we monitor all container flows from country of origin to product type. And we check for the presence of gases when required by law or for safety reasons.
Choose the most efficient method
Measuring gases in containers is unavoidable, but that doesn't mean it has to be inefficient or time-consuming. We are committed to our customers' interests here and therefore choose the most efficient methods. Our goal: to avoid delays and keep costs as low as possible before, during and after degassing!
Gas measurement on site
Gas measurements can take place at various locations. Depending on the contents and unloading location of the container, we look for the most suitable place. One of the options is the port area in Rotterdam where the container is disembarked. Does the gas inspection take place in the Rotterdam region and is the measurement level not acceptable? Then we will transport the container to a suitable location for evaporation. This can be done naturally or by force using so-called degassing doors. Our partner then measures daily until the correct level is reached and the container is allowed to travel to the unloading location. In the case of a physical inspection, the customs inspection can take place at this location once the correct gas level has been reached. If a container contains dangerous goods (IMO / ADR), the gas measurement and degassing always takes place in Rotterdam.
Additional service for our warehouse customers
We can offer our warehouse customers and customers from the Brabant region an additional option. Containers arriving by barge or train at the barge terminal in Tilburg can be measured for gasoline directly there. If an excessive gas value is measured, the container can be degassed on site. We measure containers that arrive by truck directly at our warehouse for the presence of gas. If the levels in these containers are too high, we can also degas them at the barge terminal. Due to the short distance, we can change very quickly so that your goods are not delayed.
