Dangerous Goods

ParcelHero.com adheres to the air transportation regulations outlined by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and to the road transportation regulations outlined by the UN ADR and does not accept Dangerous Goods in its system- nationally or internationally. Local national regulations also apply for road transport.

Individuals or businesses which ship Dangerous Goods without appropriate labelling documentation and packaging can face significant financial and legal penalties. It is also important to remember the following when shipping with ParcelHero.com:

If you are reusing packaging or cartons, please ensure that all old labelling is removed. Any dangerous goods labels on a package will cause the shipment to be held and inspected, causing service delays and Inconvenience to you and your customer.

If you are shipping goods that could be potentially seen as Dangerous Goods, but are not, because of their unusual name, appearance etc, it is advantageous to clearly declare on the shipping documentation that the goods are classified as Dangerous Goods. This will ensure the shipment is not delayed unnecessarily. Any misdeclaration will lead to strong penalties for the shipper.
