Shipper’s Responsibility

As an expert in dangerous goods consignment consultancy and provider of dangerous goods courier services, as a part of safe handling of dangerous goods we recommend that when shipping goods across the world, it is very important that you check if your courier contains dangerous cargo or non hazardous cargo. The nature of these hazardous goods is such that a small mistake on your part can cost lives. You can refer Hazardous Materials to check if your courier contains dangerous goods or contact us for dangerous goods consignment consultancy. To avoid mishaps due to negligence, customs use ‘fine’ and ‘penalty’ as a safety measure. This, if you plan well and seek the right guidance can be easily avoided. We specialize in dangerous goods courier services where safe handling of dangerous goods is a priority.

In accordance with the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR), for the safe handling of dangerous goods, it is the shipper who is responsible for declaring, packaging and labeling dangerous goods which are to be shipped. Thus, to play the role beyond mere dangerous goods consignment consultancy consultants, and for the safe handling of dangerous goods, as part of dangerous goods courier services, we can accept your parcel to be couriered and our services are offered only subject to certain conditions when followed by you, for your benefit, as we are merely the Agents of transfer and not shippers.

Thus, avoid the risk of harm to others and fines or punishment from custom authorities and promoting safe handling of dangerous goods ensure that your shipment does not contain any hazardous material. Some items may be considered as dangerous when they are not (e.g. chemicals), so you can avoid your shipment being delayed or stopped by adding the words “Not Restricted” to your documentation, when this applies. You can refer Hazardous Materials to check if your courier contains dangerous goods and assure that your shipment is safe to courier or contact us to avail dangerous goods consignment consultancy.

The Shipper must ensure that the articles or substances are not prohibited for transport by air (if that is the chosen mode of freight), and that the articles or substances are properly identified, classified, packed, marked, labeled and documented in accordance with IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations, as well as abide by all government regulations in the country of origin, transit and destination.

Before packing dangerous goods for transport by air, the Shipper must: (images for each broad sub header)

  • Identification of Dangerous Articles/ Substances
  • Classification and Assigning of Dangerous Goods as per the relevant classes
  • Complete Documentation

Identification of Dangerous Articles/ Substances:

Identify, correctly and fully, all dangerous articles and dangerous substances within the consignment. Refer the Dangerous Goods Regulation List – Classification or contact us to avail dangerous goods consignment consultancy (hyper link this to your own specific page, which has details sourced from IATA. Also mention source as IATA)

Classification and Assigning of Dangerous Goods as per the relevant classes:

Classify each item of dangerous goods by determining under which of the nine classes it falls and, where relevant, determining any subsidiary hazards. Where relevant, assign each item of dangerous goods to one of the three packing groups within its class. Refer the Dangerous Goods Regulation List – Classification or contact us to avail dangerous goods consignment consultancy. (hyper link this to your own specific page, which has details sourced from IATA. Also mention source as IATA)

Complete Documentation

You can refer the Dangerous Goods Regulation List or contact us to avail dangerous goods consignment consultancy. (hyper link this to your own specific page, which has details sourced from IATA.

Fastway as a part of dangerous goods courier services` does act and guide you as a clearing agent for hazardous material cargo as a part of dangerous goods consignment consultancy. It does not bear ownership or onus to the contents of the courier as the ‘shipper’ in this context is the sender of the parcel, Fastway acts only as agents of the shipment transfer.
