When it comes to shipping dangerous goods, they’re, well, dangerous.
Many of these hazardous materials fall into classes and categories to signify the nature and degree of hazard, like we’ve mentioned with lithium batteries.
Improper handling of dangerous goods can have disastrous consequences. This is why proper labeling matters.
The transportation of dangerous goods, both liquids and solids, requires considerable regulation for domestic and international shipping. Goods must meet standards before they can be accepted for shipments, including those packed in limited quantities.
Similar to how dangerous goods of high volume are transported, limited quantities follow many requirements and guidelines for shipping, in addition to having their own distinct label design for identification.
However, because of their shipping specifications when it comes to package quantity, they follow a slightly different set of standards.
