Prohibited Items Policy
Prohibited Items Policy
Effective Date: 1 Aug 2023
At Kwick Kargo, ensuring the safety of our customers, employees, and the environment is paramount. Our Restricted Items Policy is crafted to define the items that cannot be transported using our services. This comprehensive policy is designed to ensure that our operations comply with legal regulations, adhere to safety standards, and reflect ethical considerations.
Items Requiring Approval:
While many items are suitable for shipping, certain categories require special consideration. These include items that may have some level of risk or are subject to specific handling requirements. Examples include:
Hazardous Materials: These substances, like flammable liquids and explosive materials, have potential safety risks. Some hazardous materials may be eligible for transport if proper approval and handling procedures are followed.
Perishable Goods: Items that are sensitive to temperature or handling, such as fresh food and pharmaceuticals, may be considered for shipping if adequate precautions are taken.
Items Not Allowed:
There are certain items that are strictly prohibited from being transported through our services due to safety concerns, legal restrictions, or ethical reasons. These include:
Illegal Drugs and Controlled Substances: Transporting illegal drugs, narcotics, or controlled substances is strictly prohibited to align with legal regulations and ethical principles.
Weapons and Ammunition: Firearms, explosives, and ammunition are not allowed due to safety risks and misuse potential.
Live Animals or Insects: Transporting live animals and insects involves complex logistics and ethical considerations, making them restricted items.
Valuables: High-value items like cash, jewelry, and important documents may not be suitable for standard shipping due to potential insurance limitations.
Reasoning Behind Restrictions:
The limitations on certain items are established based on legal mandates, safety protocols, and ethical considerations. The primary aim is to prevent accidents, safeguard individuals and property, and avoid legal liabilities. Shipping prohibited items could lead to safety hazards, operational disruptions, and even legal actions.
Your Role and Responsibility:
As a customer, it's crucial to provide accurate and complete information about your shipment's contents. Ensuring your items do not fall under the restricted categories listed in our policy is your responsibility. If you're uncertain about whether an item can be shipped, our customer support team is available to provide guidance.
Consequences of Non-Compliance:
If restricted items are discovered in your shipment, we will be unable to proceed with transport. Depending on the nature of the violation, additional consequences may apply, including shipment delays, supplementary fees, and potential legal actions.
Our Prohibited Items Policy may be periodically updated to reflect changes in regulations and industry standards. We encourage you to review this policy regularly to ensure compliance and stay informed about any modifications.
