Is benzene transportation safe?

Benzene transport is mainly carried out by sea or inland waterways, and is subject to a number of international guidelines for safe handling of cargoes. In Europe and the USA, ships used for benzene transport meet rigorous standards that exceed those prescribed by the European or American authorities. This forms part of our voluntary commitment to the responsible handling and transport of benzene.
