Hazardous

If you are shipping hazardous cargo to Bermuda, please remember there are a lot of regulations pertaining to the transport of these goods.  At every step of the move, whoever is in possession of the freight at any particular time during transit is required to have the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)on hand and ocean freight movements require International Maritime Organization (IMO) declaration form.  These must originate from the manufacturer or shipper of the goods.  We cannot produce these forms for you.  The IMO declaration form is attached below.

As these forms are required to be tendered to the truckers hauling the containers to the port as well as the shipping line for ocean freight, we need them in advance along with the shipping invoice.

Most hazard classes are allowed to be imported into Bermuda with the notable exception of Explosives.  These include weaponry but also civilian items such as flares and fireworks.  Gases, flammable and combustible liquids, flammable solids, oxidizing substances and corrosives are generally, not all inclusively, acceptable for export.  Some toxic substances and some radioactive materials are also allowed.  If you are not sure if your cargo will be allowed into Bermuda, give us a call for confirmation.
