If a Hazardous Cargo description does not exist for a commodity a Hazardous Cargo Surcharge may be applied to a non hazardous cargo description in order to create a rate for the carriage of the hazardous cargo (i.e.: paint carried under the description of Building Materials, Non Hazardous). Any cargo description that contains a hazardous description (i.e. Chemicals, Hazardous) does not imply that the Hazardous Cargo Surcharge is included in the rate and such descriptions shall be subject to the Hazardous Cargo Surcharge.

This surcharge does not apply on vehicles [

The IMDG defines the applicable inner packaging quantity limit specified for each substance in column 7(a) and 7(b)  of the Dangerous Goods List in chapter 3.2. The shipper is responsible for identifying on its shipping instructions the cargo that is being shipped in Limited or Excepted Quantities and the applicable reference.
