Sending orders containing dangerous goods

  5. In the field next to Value, enter the identification number (UN Number/Commodity ID number) of the dangerous good you’ve set up in Starshipit.
  6. On import, all details will be copied from the dangerous goods you’ve set up to the order.

Printing Dangerous Goods Declaration Form

The DG declaration form will be automatically generated as a PDF and downloaded to your computer at the same time as the label print, using the information from the Dangerous Goods setting when the shipment is flagged for containing dangerous goods.
