Health & Safety

UK law requires businesses to adhere to the guidelines set by the Health and Safety Executive. All services are carried out under these conditions. Visiting customers will receive a Visitor’s Pack, outlining our site and working rules.


Containers are picked up from the port, delivered to our site and positioned in a bay, ready for unloading. Upon arrival and booking, onward transport vehicles are then loaded with the contents of the container.


ADL are fully insured and are also a member of BIFA. Transhipment services provided are completed under our public liability policy. Any claims are subject to our BIFA terms and conditions. We also offer additional insurance upon request, which covers the full value of cargo.


ADL use cameras, video recording devices and labelling systems. Each transhipment includes:

  • Devan reports
  • Cargo counting (where applicable)
