Radioactive Materials Transport

PDQ Specialist Courier Services provide a radioactive courier service to destinations throughout the UK and Europe. Our ADR drivers ensure the safe carriage of your radioactive items from collection to delivery. As part of our ISO 9001:2015 Quality Assurance accreditation, we have a documented Radiation Protection Programme, Local Rules and Risk Assessment and employ a Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor. Our in-house DGSA regularly audits our practice, ensuring we maintain our customer promise of delivering a service with highest safety standards and quality.

We ensure maximum security by implementing documented procedures within its ISO 9001:2015 Quality system and backed up with in-house ADR training and regular security briefings with employed and security cleared drivers.  To ensure no loss of contact with High Consequence Dangerous Goods, we utilise our SevenEye Telematics System, monitoring all temperature and vehicle movements throughout Europe.

Our vehicles are equipped with full spillage kits and are clearly marked for the safe carriage of radioactive substances. Our fleet of Mercedes Citan, Mercedes Vito and Mercedes Sprinters are based at strategically located depots throughout the country and benefit from full European breakdown cover and contract maintenance support.

We are fully qualified and experienced at collecting, transporting and delivering all classes of hazardous materials safely and within all legal parameters. When it comes to transporting Class 7 radioactive materials, we can arrange for an experienced national and international courier to carry these on your behalf to customers throughout Europe. From medical & nuclear by-products, radiochemistry and bio medical materials to nuclear medicine, blood transfusions and pharmacy supplies, we guarantee a fully certified courier service to meet your exact needs.
