What is considered dangerous goods or hazardous material?

Print  | 
Dangerous goods/hazardous materials are defined as items that require special handling, additional packaging and labeling in order to be transported internationally.
 
These items MAY or MAY NOT be allowed to ship to your country. Shipping Dangerous Goods is country-specific, and may depend on the courier you choose to ship with, including DHL or Fedex. You may not ship Dangerous Goods by USPS or UPS. 
 
Just because your country allows the import of the item, doesn’t mean the carrier is licensed to handle and transport Dangerous Goods to your country.
 
Examples of items that are considered Dangerous Goods include: items under pressure or flammable like hairspray, spray paint, lighters, nailpolish, and perfumes. 

Please view our Prohibited Items page for more information or contact Customer Service for specific information about your country and the particular items you wish to ship.
