Dangerous and restricted goods (ADR)
Due to a change in freight regulations, we have had to restrict the number of customers who are able to travel on some services. All foot passengers must book in advance on these sailings. Read our travel updates for more information.
We can carry a large variety of goods on board our vehicle ferries but when it comes to hazardous and dangerous cargo, we’re limited by regulations.
If you’re planning on bringing any dangerous goods and marine pollutants onto one of our sailings, it’s a legal requirement for you to advise us of what’s being presented for shipment. They need to be declared at least 24 hours in advance.
The International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IDMG) Code and guidelines issued by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) dictate what we can and can’t accept on board.
Please note, no dangerous goods can be carried on our FastCat catamarans or by foot passengers on our car ferries.
