If you are thinking of sending such commodities, be it for personal or commercial use; please check first with a Dangerous Goods Expert at Midtrans. If in doubt, refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet from the manufacturer to determine if the product can indeed be forwarded as regular cargo.

Midtrans will accept Dangerous Goods but with certain restrictions for the different products & services offered and only under certain conditions. Avoid the risk of harm to others and avoid fines from authorities by ensuring your shipment does not contain any hazardous material. Some items may be considered as dangerous when they are not (i.e. chemicals), so you can avoid your shipment being delayed or stopped by adding the words “Not Restricted” to your documentation, when this applies.
