Ship Dangerous Goods to China. Fast.

As trade with China becomes increasingly commonplace, speed and reliability mean everything ― especially in the aerospace, manufacturing and healthcare industries. The competitive edge you need to win your next contract depends on how fast you can get your product to your customers in different regions of China. You can’t afford any customs delays or regulatory setbacks.

A new challenge
And the challenge is even tougher when you’ve got customs-controlled shipments or items that fall under commodity restrictions. In recent years, certain commodities were reclassified by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) as dangerous goods. The reclassification made FedEx International Priority® and FedEx International Priority® Freight ineligible services for these types of shipments.

But what if your product is a dangerous good ― and your shipment must arrive in China by the end of the week? Or it requires a dangerous good to accompany the shipment while in transit? For instance, many pharmaceutical supplies need dry ice — considered a dangerous good when shipped via air — to maintain a specific temperature range. Volatile chemicals are another dangerous good common in industrial shipments.   

To trade internationally, you need a way to safely comply with IATA regulations without sacrificing the speed, convenience and reliability you expect from FedEx. A way to transport your cargo with the same urgency, streamlining and state-of-the-art monitoring you counted on with FedEx International Priority or FedEx International Priority Freight. What’s the answer?

Whether you’re moving pharmaceutical supplies on dry ice, transporting volatile chemicals or shipping other types of dangerous goods to China, your job just got easier.
