Ride with some of the most dangerous payloads on earth to see how they make it safely to their destinations.
From radioactive material to endangered species, dangerous cargo comes in many shapes and sizes, and each payload demands different plans and precautions. No matter what they are carrying and where it is bound, the professionals who transport these potentially deadly loads know that meticulous preparation is the key to a safe trip.
MORE DANGEROUS CARGO! opens with a dynamite run from an explosives factory to the construction site. Next, get the real story on a hot-button issue--the transport of liquid natural gas, a fuel capable of vaporizing city blocks if ignited. DEA agents offer some details of how they transport contraband bound for incinerators, while Air Net ships drugs of a different kind: radioactive pharmaceuticals bound for treatment centers. Finally, travel with two tigers as they make the trip from Texas to Ohio as part of a captive breeding program.
