Moving your Dangerous Goods (DG) by air, sea or road is unlike usual traditional shipments of a general nature.
In other words, for DG shipments, it isn’t as straightforward as placing an item in a box, placing a delivery label on it and shipping it out. Instead, one must take into consideration the Dangerous Goods safety regulations and requirements based on the content of the shipment involved.
The full process of shipping DG items involves a lot of preparation – from packing the items properly with ample space and proper mitigation factors, to using the right UN boxes for shipping, to ensuring the right documents are prepared (DG Checklist, Dangerous Goods Declaration Form, etc.) to using only suitable transportation modes that meet the DG item requirements.
Shipments that are packed and sent with incorrect packaging, documentation, marks and labels will cause rejections, delays and additional costs.
All in all, it basically means that the team preparing these items MUST have a full understanding of the relevant regulations in place for each DG shipment and are licensed to carry out the duties.
Your Shipment, YOUR Responsibility
As the shipper, it is your responsibility to ensure Dangerous Goods are correctly packaged, declared and labelled with the right documentations and proper transportation services as they travel from the country of origin, to the transiting country and to the country of destination
Extra Surcharges Involved
