Shipping Dangerous Goods

If your items can be mistaken, perceived, or can be related to dangerous goods please provide us with the MSDS (Manufacturer’s Safety Data Sheet) to have them validated and authorized by us. After you provide us with an MSDS we will check and confirm whether we are able to send your item as a regular generic cargo or if your item has been classified as a Dangerous Good. If so, we will still be able to ship your item but that may incur extra charges and may prolong delivery time. Read More here -
