Shipping Dangerous Goods
Whatever you send, know it will travel safely and be received responsibly. Our air and ground staff are traned in dangerous-goods protocols.
To be certain your package was received, we'll make sure it's signed for by the right person. If it requires multiple signatures along the way, we can see to that too.
Not a letter? Not a box? Not a problem. We can account for shape, weight, size and shrink-wrapped items and get them safely where they need to be.
Pickup and Delivery Extras
Accommodate customers with Saturday delivery or a hold for pick-up at their convenience. We can also collect non-cash payments on your behalf.
Same Day Service Enhancements
For high-priority oversized or otherwise unconventional packages, you can request a larger delivery team, a bigger vehicle and/or early pickup/late delivery.
Add this to your process for seamless returns. You can pre-create return shipping labels to include with your packages or you can create and send them as needed.
Not home to sign a package? Don’t worry. If we don’t get proper age-of-majority verification, we’ll hold your shipment for you in a secure Purolator facility. Mitigate risk with an ID verification and a signature.
Purolator is the leading Canadian carrier of dangerous goods via both air and ground, with an exemplary safety and compliance record.
A Limited Quantity Exemption may apply to your shipment if you are shipping small quantities of dangerous goods. This exemption is a simpler regulatory alternative to preparing all DG shipments as fully regulated.
The 500 kg Exemption is an alternative to preparing shipments as fully regulated, and simplifies packaging and paperwork. However, this exemption is limited to select classes/divisions of dangerous goods.
Dry ice is a great choice for keeping small shipments cold or frozen. However, dry ice falls under dangerous goods regulations, so it is critical to package these shipments correctly.
Fully Regulated shipments must be prepared in full compliance with the regulations for the applicable mode of transport. Shippers are responsible for ensuring compliance. The Dangerous Goods section of purolator.com and the Transports Canada website are a great place to start for information. We are also available 24/7 to answer your questions at 1 888 SHIP-123.
Get added flexibility or security with our signature options.
Securely ship controlled items that need more than one signature throughout the transportation route.
To ensure the responsible delivery of your package, we’ll obtain an age of majority signature (based on the destination province) upon arrival.
Rest easy knowing we can handle most of the items you need to ship even if they don't conform to regular package specifications.
Shipments that require Special Handling because of their shape, size, packaging, contents (pressurized, liquid, screws, fasteners, etc.), and more.
