As the name suggests, dangerous goods transportation is dangerous in nature, so our Hong Kong logistics industry has relevant requirements when importing and exporting such goods. What are the specific requirements?

  1. Danger package certificate, which has the number of pieces and validity period, and cannot expire. A scanned copy is provided when booking space, and the original copy is required when the shipping company intercepts and declares danger.
  2. English version MSDS, mainly if you are talking about chemicals, whether it is dangerous goods or not, you need to provide English version MSDS. An accurate MSDS can determine whether the goods are general goods or dangerous goods.
  3. Customs declaration information. The customs declaration information for general cargo is the same as the customs declaration information for dangerous goods. There is no difference.
  4. Dangerous goods booking mainly involves filling in the shipping company’s dangerous goods application form. This form needs to be filled in correctly and cannot be filled in incorrectly, because dangerous goods review is often conducted abroad. If the information filled in is wrong, it will be very serious. This may result in the position not being approved.

Next, the editor will explain in detail the import and export transportation requirements for Class 3 and Class 4 dangerous goods.

Most shipping companies can accept Class 3 dangerous goods. The main dangerous attribute is flash point. According to the flash point, they are divided into three types of packaging. Class I packaging is the most stringent, followed by Class II packaging, and then Class III packaging.
Dangerous goods need to be checked and shipped, palletized, and marked (the ingredients and content must be consistent with the customs declaration information). Dangerous goods have minimum square footage requirements.
The dangerous properties of Class 4 dangerous goods are flammable solids.
Specifically subdivided into Category 4.1, Category 4.2 and Category 4.3 dangerous goods. This category of products is quite special. Some Category 4 dangerous goods have temperature requirements and require refrigeration cabinets for export. There are also some 4.1 categories that do not require direct installation on the ship’s side. Most Category 4 products require direct installation on the ship’s side.

Okay, the above are the relevant requirements for the import and export transportation of dangerous goods in Hong Kong logistics. The transportation of dangerous goods in Hong Kong is relatively special. Hong Kong logistics companies will not transport many goods if they do not meet the corresponding requirements.
