International Dangerous Goods Service Definition
International Dangerous Goods Service Definition:
UPS accepts international dangerous goods on a contract basis only. UPS also accepts international excepted quantities as outlined in section 2.6 of the IATA DGR on a contract basis only. UPS accepts non-bulk quantities of dangerous goods shipments for transport by "air" modes when prepared in accordance with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Technical Instructions.

"Air" modes include UPS Worldwide Express, UPS Worldwide Express FreightSM, UPS Expedited, and Euro Express. This UPS Guide for Shipping International Dangerous Goods should always be used in conjunction with the most current IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations.

You, as the shipper, may ship specific dangerous goods in specific quantities as outlined in the accepted table as long as you fully comply with all governmental regulations and UPS variations.

In some cases, UPS requirements are more restrictive than those of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations. UPS "conditions incident to transportation" differ from those of other systems due to our unique method for sorting, handling, and moving packages. UPS only accepts dangerous goods shipments from customers that follow these variations.

UPS only transports dangerous goods to and from approved countries. You, as the shipper, must complete all requirements for the dangerous goods shipment prior to pickup. Contact your local UPS Customer Service Department for qualification and approval information. UPS does not accept dangerous goods shipments at UPS Customer Centers or Air Letter Centers.

The Dangerous Goods Service handling charge applies to all dangerous goods shipments that require a Shipper´s Declaration.

Time-in-transit guarantees do not apply to dangerous goods shipments that are delayed due to causes beyond the carrier´s control or acts of God. Further, no guarantee applies to dangerous goods shipments that are improperly offered for transport.
