DANGEROUS GOODS SHIPPING (DG)

Dangerous Goods Shipping, also referred to as DG shipping, is a specialized area of function in the logistics industry. 

Transportation of dangerous goods is highly regulated by domestic and global organizations such as the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the International Air Transport Association (IATA), and the US Department of Transportation (DOT), to name a few. Non-conformance of these strict dangerous goods regulations could result in significant fines, penalties, or even imprisonment (these could be as high as $500,000 per incident for organizations, and $250,000 for individuals with/without imprisonment terms).

THE 9 CLASSES OF DANGEROUS GOODS

Dangerous goods are materials or substances that, when transported, pose a risk to human life and safety, property, or the environment. Certain dangerous goods that pose risks even when not being transported are known as hazardous materials.

The United Nations Model Regulations use a globally accepted dangerous goods classification system in which all dangerous materials are tagged under a specific class as related to their handling, storage, and transportation.

This class assignment depends on the nature of the dangerous cargo or the hazardous materials. Per this system, there are 9 dangerous goods classes (with some materials are further classified into sub-categories).

Class 1: Explosives

Class 1 Materials have the ability to detonate or combust due to a chemical reaction. These items are regulated because they can cause damage by producing gas at high speeds, pressures, and temperatures.

Class 2: Gases

Class 2 Materials are substances that are completely gaseous at 20°C or which have a vapour pressure of at least 300 kPa at 50°C. These items are regulated because they are toxic to humans, can be flammable, and may cause asphyxiation.

Class 3: Flammable liquid

Class 3 Materials are liquids, mixtures, or liquids containing solids that have a flashpoint (meaning they give off a flammable vapour) at temperatures below 60 – 65°C. Flammable liquids are volatile and, as such, have the ability to spontaneously combust and cause fires.

Class 4: Flammable solids

Class 4 materials are similar to Class 3 material except they exist in solid form. They are also flammable when they come into contact with water.

Class 5: Organic peroxides and other oxidizing substances

Class 5 Materials consist of oxidizers, which create oxygen as a result of a chemical reaction. Organic peroxides are also in this category. They contain hydrogen and organic radicals, which leads to rapid burns and decomposition. They can cause damage to the eyes.

Class 6: Poisonous and infectious substances

Class 6 Materials consist of toxic substances, which are items that can serious injury or death if inhaled, swallowed, or touched. Infectious substances are also in this category. They contain pathogens such as bacteria, parasites, and other agents that can cause disease.

Class 7: Radioactive material

Class 7 Materials contain unstable radionuclides, which cause radioactive decay. The result is radiation exposure, which is harmful to human health.

Class 8: Corrosives

Class 8 Materials are substances that cause disintegration to other materials through a chemical reaction. They can cause severe damage to human skin and other living organisms.

Class 9: Dangerous goods

Class 9 Materials are not covered by other classes. These include hazardous substances that can harm human health and safety, as well as their means of transport.
