How to specify Dangerous Goods shipping and Regulation type [Step-by-Step Guide]

Modified on Wed, 27 Jan 2021 at 04:45 PM

When shipping orders with Dangerous Goods you will need to specify so and under which regulation. TechShip allows such action for the carriers that support it.

There are two places in the platform where this is done: 

  • On the Order Level, specifying if the order ships dangerous goods or not
  • On the Client and Billing Account level, where you can define which regulation applies to the case

Feel free to follow the step-by-step guide written below or the video guide, as you prefer:
