TCB Group specialise in the transport of dangerous goods by Air and can handle all aspects of your dangerous goods supply chain by air freight from our UK hubs.


The Government operated Rare and Imported Pathogens Laboratory in Porton Down, Salisbury specialise in the diagnosis and management of unusual or hazardous infectious diseases present in the UK or imported into the country.

The movement of this type of infectious substance affecting humans (Suspect Category A Infectious Substance) is heavily restricted and requires precise knowledge and planning.

Our client’s instructions were straight forward;

  1. Collect and depart by Air Day 1.
  2. Deliver Day 2.


TCB Group’s exceptional relationship with all air carriers meant that we were able to secure the required flight to suit our client’s requirements.

All documentation was compiled and approved by the air carrier in advance to eliminate any delay possibility and three independently security approved carriers were approved for each leg of the transfer

  1. Collecting agent
  2. Air carrier
  3. Clearance and delivery agent

The operation from start to finish was coordinated by our UK and Ireland Air Freight Team.


Within a very short time frame TCB Air constructed an air supply chain that complied with the necessary security arrangements and was able to deliver according to the client’s and consignee’s requirements.

The consignment was delivered on time, in full and without damage.

TCB Group has the knowledge and experience when it comes to packing and transporting hazardous goods to source appropriate personnel, plan the most effective routes and deliver your goods safely and quickly.
