Can I ship "Dangerous Goods" to my country from the USA?
Don't know what dangerous goods are? Wondering if you can ship them to your country?
Products or substances that can pose a danger to people, property and the environment while being shipped are often considered Hazardous Materials, or "Dangerous Goods," as they are also known.
Some items pose obvious safety risks, like a large tank of flammable chemicals. However, some common, everyday products can be considered "Dangerous Goods" when they're being shipped - including nail polish, perfume, hand sanitizer, paint, shoe polish, cell phone batteries, and electronics.
While these everyday items may be harmless in your home, they need special handling when being shipped. For more details on what may be considered "Dangerous Goods," click here.
