How do On Board Courier services handle the transportation of items that require special documents or permits, such as restricted chemicals?

When it comes to transporting items that require special documents or permits, such as restricted chemicals, On Board Courier (OBC) services adhere to specific procedures. These procedures ensure the legal and safe transportation of such items. Here is an explanation of how OBC services handle such shipments:

1. Compliance check: Upon receiving a request to transport items that require special permits or documentation, the OBC service first conducts a compliance check. This involves verifying whether they are legally allowed to transport the specific item and if they possess the necessary permits and licenses to handle it.

2. Document and permit collection: If the OBC service is compliant and has the required permits/licenses, they proceed to collect all the necessary documents from the shipper. This may include permits, licenses, SDS (Safety Data Sheet), certificates, and any other relevant paperwork required for legal transportation.

3. Document verification: The OBC service carefully verifies all the collected documents to ensure their authenticity, validity, and appropriateness for the shipment. They cross-check the details mentioned in the paperwork with the specific item being transported.

4. Packaging and labeling: Once the documents are verified, the OBC service guides the shipper on how to properly package and label the restricted item. Compliance with international packaging standards and regulations is strictly adhered to in order to ensure safety during transportation.

5. Secure handling: OBC services utilize experienced couriers who are trained in handling sensitive and restricted items. The shipper hands over the securely packaged item, along with all the verified permits and documentation, to the courier, who remains responsible for its safety throughout the journey.

6. Custom clearance: The OBC service ensures that all customs requirements and regulations related to the shipment are fulfilled. They submit the necessary paperwork and obtain the required clearances from relevant authorities, ensuring legal compliance at all times.

7. Continuous monitoring and tracking: OBC services monitor the shipment throughout its journey, using real-time tracking systems. This helps them to ensure that the item is safely transported, and any issues or delays can be promptly addressed.

8. Delivery and handover: Once the shipment reaches its destination, the OBC service hands over the item to the intended recipient upon verifying their identity and acquiring any additional legal documentation or permits required for the final delivery.

By following these procedures, On Board Courier services aim to ensure that items requiring special permits or documentation are safely and legally transported, meeting the necessary regulatory standards at every step.
