There are extremely strict rules which regulate what you can and cannot send as freight and they fall mainly into the following 3 categories.
- Dangerous goods: Many items which seem harmless are regarded as "dangerous goods" when being shipped by cargo. It is against the law to send these items in your packages if they are not declared on the shippers inventory. If you do have "dangerous goods" to send they must be packed and handled correctly. Dangerous goods are more expensive to send than general freight. The most common types of dangerous goods which a client may have are perfumes, aftershaves, aerosols, used car parts, shock absorbers. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure these items are not shipped alongside normal personal effects without being brought to our attention. A list containing examples of dangerous goods can be found here.
- Valuable cargo: We do not accept valuable cargo. This includes cash, traveller's cheques, stamp collections, deeds, tickets, jewellery, watches or similar highly valuable items.
- Waste materials. There are strict anti-dumping laws which prevent the shipping of scrap metal and used tyres etc.
