If this information is not provided on time or incorrectly, they may even refuse the shipment. It is therefore important to supply this information completely and correctly! In addition, the shipping company, port or airport may charge extra fees, depending on the UN classified dangerous goods. This has to do with the additional actions required to schedule the goods at the terminal and on board the ship, truck or aircraft.
