The definition of ADR
ADR is the name of the European treaty regarding dangerous goods. The treaty contains regulations for traffic regarding packaging, securing of loads, and labelling of dangerous goods. ADR is an abbreviation for “The European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road.” The international term ADR is so widely used in the transport industry that almost anyone in the industry understands what is meant, regardless of their country of origin.
