Do you know your dangerous goods

On a daily basis we process 1.1 million items to 190 countries worldwide. To ensure the safety of all employees involved, certain items can only be shipped under very strict conditions or even not at all. Do you know if you are compliant to these rules?

Perfume, dry shampoo, nail polish and powerbanks are just a few examples of everyday products which cannot be sent via the international postal network. Postal authorities have the right to destroy or even confiscate these type of goods. What’s even more is that it can also have a negative impact on the entire network.

Checking if all items are compliant takes time, and therefore impacts all international mail volumes. As a retailer you just want to get your items delivered to your customers within the specified time frame. Therefore, it is important that you know what you can and cannot send internationally.

Here you can find an overview of these regulations. However, we always advise you to contact your local Account Team to discuss your international shipments, and to ensure that you are doing all you can to ship safely.
