Dangerous Goods

Dangerous Goods are articles or substances which are capable of posing a risk to health, safety, property or the environment.

PACK & SEND does not carry, nor perform other services regarding goods which in our sole opinion are dangerous goods, including, but not limited to, those specified in the International Air Transport Association (IATA) dangerous goods regulations. The "No Dangerous Goods" declaration on the PACK & SEND consignment note must be completed by the customer or the consignment will not be accepted.

PACK & SEND may at its discretion accept some dangerous goods for carriage (such as Lithium Batteries) in certain circumstances. Your dangerous goods will only be accepted if they comply with the applicable regulations, codes and technical instructions and our requirements. Details of our requirements are available by contacting a PACK & SEND Service Centre.
