Dangerous Goods

Modified on Tue, 25 Jul 2023 at 03:30 PM

Dangerous goods (DG) in our system are products that, due to their materials, pose risks to health, safety, property, or the environment during transportation.

These DG products have an MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) and a corresponding UN Number that identifies the type of dangerous substance in the product.

Creating a DG Product:

In the Customer Dashboard, you can now create DG products by selecting "Product is a dangerous good".

Multiple UN Numbers can be linked to the product based on the information in the MSDS document.

After adding a UN number, specify the quantity of the dangerous good in grams, liters, etc., as indicated in the MSDS document.

The Product page will display a DG icon and the UN Number in the Product details section.

Shipments with DG products will be also flagged with the same DG symbol, on the shipments page.
