When shipping orders with Dangerous Goods you will need to specify so and under which regulation. TechShip allows such action for the carriers that support it.

There are two places in the platform where this is done: 

  • On the Order Level, specifying if the order ships dangerous goods or not
  • On the Client and Billing Account level, where you can define which regulation applies to the case
  • Depending on the Carrier, at the SKU level

WARNING: The carriers might not return all the necessary labels that might be required to ship dangerous goods. You might need to print additional labeling according to the case separately from the labels returned by the carrier, or contact Techdinamics staff to request custom generation of additional labels that cover these needs. 

NOTE: This article is illustrative, showing screen captures of a FedEx account/item setup. Controls may vary depending on the carrier, if available. It is also applicable for DHL with slight variances on the last steps.

If you are shipping Dangerous Goods via UPS Parcel, review the following article instead: Shipping Dangerous Goods through UPS [Step-by-Step Guide]

Feel free to follow the step-by-step guide written below or the video guide, as you prefer:


1. Find the order through any of the possible ways (after Import Orders, Batches, Order History, etc) as it applies to the case

2. Click the edit button of the order you wish to change

3. Check the Dangerous Goods box in the Carrier Options Tab


4. Press Save to apply the changes


1. Access Clients under the Maintenance menu

2. Click on the client related to the order

3. Edit the Billing Account related to the order and error


4. Select the Carrier Options tab

5. Select the regulation from the Dangerous Goods Regulation list that applies to the case and account

6. Press Save to apply the changes


Some carriers, like FedEx or DHL, support providing Dangerous Goods information at the SKU level.

For this you can either manually add these to techSHIP, upload a file, or synchronize your SKU information/details from the WMS whenever supported.

To do so:

1. Access Clients under the Maintenance menu


2. Select the Client

3. Press the Items tab

4. Depending on the case: 

  • Add items manually (Press Add and complete the Basic information)
  • Add items using a file (Select the file and press Import & Replace Items)
  • Add items syncing your WMS info with techSHIP (Press Sync WMS Items, confirm)

5. Edit the Item(s)

6. Open the section according to the Carrier for which you will complete the DG information (you can complete information for multiple carriers simultaneously for the same SKU)

7. Press Save to apply the changes 

This will allow to properly report Dangerous Goods information to the Carrier.

Remember this doesn't imply that the labels the Carrier returns when you process the order are all the labels required for Dangerous Goods

Review and print additional labeling according to the case.
