What is considered Dangerous Goods?

  • Dangerous Good are materials or items with hazardous properties, which if not properly controlled, present a potential hazard to human health, the environment or infrastructure.

How do I know if my product is Dangerous Goods?

  • The first step is to obtain a copy of the Safety Data Sheet for your product.

  • Next flip to the Transportation Section (Usually Section 14). You'll want to look at the details listed beside each mode of transport. If there's a UN # listed beside the mode of transport, it's DG. If it says Unregulated or Not Restricted, it is not. Still unclear? Give us a call (905) 564-2453 or e-mail and we'll take a look for you.

How can I learn more about shipping & handling Dangerous Goods?

  • If you're looking to expand your knowledge, the best way is to enroll in our in-class IATA training. This course serves all sectors of the transportation industry and will provide you with an immersive education on how to handle and ship dangerous goods. It will also certify you so that you're legally allowed to ship dangerous goods via air. More details here.
