Surprisingly, hazardous materials (hazmat) are found in many of the items that Stackry clients purchase and have sent to their lockers every day. These materials often include everything from paints to batteries. But in addition to the obvious ones, some mundane items such as cosmetics, aerosols and perfumes can be considered dangerous goods.
No matter the use, hazardous materials must be handled with care. There are special regulations and procedures that must be complied with when these goods are shipped by air, especially internationally. There are numerous regulations and requirements outlining proper care for dangerous goods while on site and also in transit.
Shipping hazmat internationally is complicated. Not all carriers will handle hazmat, and those that do, only offer it to a select list of countries. While many of our competitors will not handle hazmat, Stackry has over ten years of experience with it. We have a team of experts who know how to identify, classify, pack and label dangerous goods.
