What merchandise is considered dangerous goods or hazardous materials?

Dangerous goods/hazardous materials are items that require special handling, additional packaging, and labeling 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 also depend on the courier you choose. USPS or UPS cannot ship dangerous goods. Even if your country allows the import of an item, the carrier may not be licensed to handle and transport dangerous goods.

Items considered to be dangerous goods include: flammable items or items under pressure (e.g., hairspray, spray paint, lighters, nail polish and perfume). Dangerous goods items may be required to ship separately from non-dangerous goods items.

Please view our restricted and prohibited items list for more information, or contact us for specific information regarding your country and the items you wish to ship.
