During sea transport, everyday goods can sometimes be classified as dangerous. Propane gas lighters, regular wall paint, fireworks, liquor, garden weedkillers, and other items are included in this list. Several restrictions apply to the transportation of these goods, so they must be handled carefully to ensure their safety on the sea and on land. There are 9 classes for dangerous goods:

  • Class 1 Explosives
