‘Everything is bigger in Texas.’ Did you know that Special Cargo Services also has a branch in the USA? In Texas, the Dangerous Goods experts of Special Cargo Houston are ready to assist you in preparing hazardous materials for shipping. With a team of 20 professionals, a hazardous materials warehouse of 100,000 square feet (approximately 10,000 square meters), and a capacity of 1900 pallets, no challenge is too big. So, if your company deals with shipments to or from America, take a look at what we can do for you.

Reliable hub

To better serve our international customer base, we established Special Cargo Houston in 2020. Located in the heart of the oil and gas industry, this branch is a reliable hub where hazardous goods are received and dispatched for labeling, packaging, repackaging, and documentation. The experts at Special Cargo Houston guide their clients through the complex web of international regulations for the transportation of hazardous goods, maintaining the same quality, passion, and efficiency that you’ve come to expect from us.

Both Overseas and in the Netherlands

In Houston, we primarily serve the energy sector by preparing and shipping hazardous materials in classes 1 through 9. Many hazardous materials are manufactured in the United States and find their market in Europe and Asia. Through our Amsterdam and Rotterdam branches, these goods are further transported into the hinterland. Thus, both overseas and here in the Netherlands, we play a crucial role in the safe and efficient transportation of all your hazardous goods.


Some highlights of the services offered by our Houston branch include:

  • Preparing shipments for all hazard classes, with a focus on classes 1 and 7
  • Specialization in lithium batteries
  • (Temporary) storage of goods in all hazard classes
  • Design and manufacturing of UN4D wooden crates for safe multimodal transportation
  • Chemical decanting from large containers into small drums
  • Development of complete compliance programs
  • Consultancy and project management in the field of hazardous materials

If you want to learn more about what we can do for your hazardous materials supply chain from America, please contact us at houston@specialcargo.com or visit our website. You can also consult with your trusted contact in the Netherlands first, of course.
