You may not have noticed that you are sending dangerous goods! The MSDS report is as important to you, the courier staff, the recipient, other shipments or the environment as a mask under the COVID-19!

Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) is a vital report which listed the physical and chemical properties of the cargo materials. Logistics company will make special delivery and storage arrangements according to different circumstances.

As a shipper, misdeclaration, incorrect packaging and improper handling of dangerous goods can lead to shipment failure.

If you are not sure whether the consignment is in the category of dangerous goods, you should obtain the report from distributor or manufacturer.

If you are planning to ship dangerous goods, please contact FreightAmigo to ensure a smooth shipment.
