The term used by I.M.C.O. for hazardous materials which are capable of posing a significant risk to health, safety or property while being transported. Shipping hazardous materials requires more attention to detail than transporting regular goods.
Complex requirements govern each transportation mode, and the rules may vary in different locations. Compliance is critical; getting it wrong can translate into heavy fines, undelivered products, or lost market-share opportunities.
Proper packaging is the key to safe transport of hazardous materials. Leaking hazmat packages can pose serious risks to the safety of transportation workers and to the environment. Using suitable containers, sufficient cushioning, absorbent materials, and secure closures will keep hazmat where it belongs—inside the package.
