Release time:2024-02-26

When exporting goods to foreign countries, seller companies often encounter concepts such as dangerous/sensitive goods, and products involving dangerous goods have much higher requirements for transportation than ordinary products. Today, I will share with you what products are classified as dangerous goods in cross-border logistics transportation and what precautions need to be taken when shipping.

Dangerous goods goods
Dangerous goods in international transportation refer to goods that can pose a threat to health, safety, property, or the environment and are listed in the Dangerous Goods List of IATA DGR. Goods or substances classified according to this rule are called dangerous goods. So the shipper needs to correctly identify, classify, package, mark, affix labels, and fill out declaration forms according to IATA DGR.
Dangerous goods: Any goods with explosive, flammable, toxic, corrosive, radioactive and other properties that are prone to personal injury and property damage during transportation, loading and unloading, and storage and require special protection are classified as dangerous goods.
Pipeline gas or liquefied petroleum gas, air freshener, insecticide, perfume, paint, adhesive, medicine, bleach, notebook battery, ink, toner cartridge, etc. for decoration.
Which type belongs to logistics dangerous goods?
Various foods and medicines:
These items may pose a risk of biological invasion, therefore quarantine certificates are required for international transportation. Goods that have not been quarantined or certified are classified as sensitive goods. Such as meat, seeds, bread and biscuits, kitchen seasonings, various medicines, etc.
Electrical items with magnetic tape:
These types of products are usually subject to air transportation restrictions because electric items with magnetic tapes can interfere with aviation safety during flight. Currently, domestic aviation regulations prohibit live products from boarding aircraft, and magnetic products need to be declared for magnetic inspection. Such as chargers, mobile phones, watches, game consoles, electric toys, razors, various magnets, magnetic blocks, magnetic materials, etc.
Famous brand products and luxury goods:
Most of these products involve legal dispute risks such as infringement, and genuine products are prone to smuggling, counterfeiting, or legal infringement. For example, bags and watches from major brands.
Unstable items such as liquids/pastes/powders:
These items may experience leakage during transportation due to force majeure causing deformation of the outer packaging. Generally speaking, air transportation has stricter requirements for such items. These cosmetics are mostly toner, essence, face cream, facial mask, highlights, powder blusher, etc.
Class VIII corrosive product package:
According to the definition, corrosive substances refer to solid or liquid substances that can harm human tissues or cause damage to metals and other objects. If visible necrosis occurs within less than four hours of contact with the skin, or if the annual corrosion rate on the surface of No. 20 steel exceeds 6.25mm/y at a temperature of 55 ℃, it is considered corrosive.
Corrosive products have various characteristics, including corrosiveness, toxicity, oxidation, flammability, water reactivity, pollution, etc. Different corrosive products in the same category also have different hazards.
For example, new energy products such as batteries and solar cells, which have seen a surge in export volume recently, belong to the Class VIII corrosive goods package among the nine hazardous materials.
