Many cannot ship perfume and other dangerous goods, what is dangerous goods?

Dan­ger­ous goods or haz­ardous mate­ri­als may be pure chem­i­cals, mix­tures of sub­stances, man­u­fac­tured prod­ucts, which can pose a risk to peo­ple, ani­mals or the envi­ron­ment if not prop­er­ly han­dled in use or in transport.

Many dif­fer­ent type of goods which we encounter on a dai­ly basis can be haz­ardous to our health if we come into con­tact with them too often or for too long. There are also sub­stances and mate­ri­als which are dan­ger­ous for trans­port which present obvi­ous risks.

The trans­port of dan­ger­ous goods is reg­u­lat­ed in order to pre­vent, as far as pos­si­ble, acci­dents involv­ing peo­ple or prop­er­ty, dam­age to the
envi­ron­ment, to the means of trans­port employed or to oth­er goods being trans­port­ed. For more infor­ma­tion about ship­ping dan­ger­ous goods by air click here and by road please click here.
