Dangerous Goods Fulfilment and Shipping: A Guide to Safe and Compliant Operations
If you’re an eCommerce business dealing with dangerous goods, you’re likely aware of the challenges of fulfilling these types of products. There’s a lot to consider, from compliance with regulations to finding a provider with the appropriate accreditations. That’s where E-PickPack comes in. As a UK-based fulfilment centre in Aylesbury, we specialise in handling and shipping dangerous goods, offering reliable, efficient, and cost-effective solutions for businesses of all sizes.
What are dangerous goods?
At E-PickPack, we understand that you may already know what dangerous goods are, but here’s a quick refresher: dangerous goods are products that consist of any objects or substances that, if not handled or packed appropriately, could endanger one’s health and safety, property, or the external environment. You can find below all Dangerous goods labels by classes 1 to 9.
Dangerous goods fall under six categories:
However, fulfilling these items through a chosen fulfilment provider can be daunting. This is a pain point for businesses that sell dangerous goods that cannot be ignored.
The pain points of fulfilling dangerous goods
Speaking of pain points, there are definitely a couple that arises should you need to fulfil products that are classed as dangerous goods. Let’s go through a couple of examples:
The pain of switching providers: Okay, so you’re an eCommerce business meeting exponentially rapid growth with an expansion to your product line. Which is fabulous, by the way!
Alas, these new products are classed as dangerous goods. Your current fulfilment provider cannot fulfil them because they do not have the appropriate accreditations, for example. Now you need to switch to a fulfilment provider who can store, fulfil and ship these orders to customers eagerly awaiting your new products.
Definitely a pain point; however, it’s not the end of the world entirely. If your product lines include some dangerous goods items, why not switch your fulfilment to us, and we’ll take care of it (continue reading to discover how!)
The pain of ambiguous regulations: This particular pain point may not be the case for you. However, suppose your current fulfilment partner has provided you with masses of documents with ambiguous jargon relating to the classification of dangerous goods. In that case, this is bound to cause irritation on your end.
Lack of clarity on whether your current provider is meeting industry regulations and their own is definitely something to avoid so that other issues do not crop up in the short or long term. Similarly to the above pain point, it may be time to pull the ol’ switcheroo on your current fulfilment provider and find one who can fulfil your goods, dangerous or otherwise.
