Dangerous goods are items or chemicals that may endanger one’s health, safety, property, or the environment. They must be appropriately packaged, handled with care, and shipped with the necessary competence to ensure they arrive safely at their destination.
If you are unsure whether your shipment is categorized as dangerous goods, request a Safety Data Sheet (SDS) from the manufacturer or supplier. If a UN number appears or is mentioned in Chapter 14, it is a harmful good.
There are nine types of dangerous goods, and it is critical to understand which products belong into which. Some items, such as explosives and poisons, are obviously hazardous. Others, however, may surprise you. Aerosols, fragrances, and most products using lithium batteries, such as mobile phones or laptop computers, also count.
