For the transport of explosives and nuclear material we use own trucks, equipped for the highest standards for European explosives transportation (ADR):
hard body trucks
side-opening doors 13 meters
real time GPS monitoring
door opening alarm
emergency labeling on top of the truck
We offer 4 categories of vehicles for the transportation of explosives:
Within the last years, several cases have led to increased safety requirements for the transportation of arms and ammunition.
The WaffVwV states in § 29 WaffG (Weapons Act):
1. Requirements for safety level 1 (Arms/ ammunition Category A)
2. A transportation by truck is only permitted with usage of a closed container or a closed box body. Additionally, the truck needs to be escorted by armed guards.
Category A incorporates:
6.8.1 Forbidden firearms (Category A)
188.8.131.52 War firearms with numbers 29 and 30 on the War Weapons List (Attachment of
§1; 1 Law of the control of War firearms)
184.108.40.206 Automatic, self-loading firearms
220.127.116.11 Firearms that are suitable of simulating a different item or that are disguised as
18.104.22.168 Pistol- and revolver ammunition with expansive bullets, as well as bullets for
this ammunition, with the exception of such for hunting and sporting arms of
persons, who are legally allowed to use such arms.
Carriers of the above mentioned arms require a certificate of exemption issued by the Federal Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BKA). This is a prerequisite to receive transfer permission.
We are well prepared for these elevated requirements and are in possession of the certificate of exemption issued by the BKA. Furthermore, we have obtained the license according to §34 a security-guarding act for guarding operations. Specially trained employees possess a firearms license and are therefore able to entirely fulfill the requirements of the Weapons Act for escorting truck transports.
