The basic international transport documents required for shipping goods are the pro forma invoice (or commercial invoice), packing list, air waybill, bill of lading and other export permits required by the respective country.
In addition, for the transport of dangerous goods by road, a so-called ADR dangerous goods declaration is required, which must contain the following information: UN number, official name of the dangerous goods, substance class, packing group, number and description of packages, quantity of dangerous goods, and name and address of the shipper and consignee.
For worldwide air transport, the ICAO-TI / IATA-DGR regulations apply to the shipment of dangerous goods. For national and cross-border road transport, the ADR regulations are relevant.
Dangerous goods shipping requires expert know-how and careful handling. Depending on the countries involved and the dangerous goods, further specific documents and permits may be required. It is advisable to check with the relevant authorities and transport companies such as CSI before shipping dangerous goods internationally to ensure that all necessary documents are in place and legal requirements are met.
