In the general mess of paperwork and regulation that is required for a dangerous goods shipment, it can often be unclear as to exactly what is a dangerous item, what is prohibited and what is a regulated item but can be sent via a parcel network such as Norsk.

We recommend always seeking out a specialist for a shipment that may be a borderline case, however the table below should show a rough guide as to what can or can’t be sent via the respective services.

Why use Norsk’s Dangerous Goods department? We are industry specialists and have unparalleled service from IATA trained DG staff waiting to handle your request.
