Powdered substances are considered sensitive items in international express delivery, and their air transportation falls under the category of restricted goods. Even choosing shipping methods like sea freight, railway freight, and land freight, transporting bulk powder presents unique challenges that demand precision and expertise.

Due to the difficulty in determining the nature of powdered goods, the risk of contamination with hazardous substances, and the potential for explosions when exposed to an open flame in high-density, high-pressure environments, many logistics companies restrict their shipping channels.

Factors such as moisture sensitivity, particle size, and the nature of the powder itself require careful consideration. Additionally, ensuring compliance with international regulations adds another layer of complexity to the logistics process. That is why we need a professional freight forwarder to guide you on how to ship powder in the global trade.

Understanding Powder Transport

What is Bulk Powder Transport?

Bulk powder transport involves the movement of finely divided, dry particles in large quantities. These particles can encompass a wide range of materials, from minerals and chemicals to pharmaceutical ingredients and food products. The transportation of bulk powder requires specialized handling to ensure the integrity and quality of the materials throughout the journey.

Common powdered goods include fine chemicals, food, pharmaceuticals, intermediates, organic and inorganic chemicals, agricultural chemicals, additives, coatings and adhesives, polymers, fragrances and flavors, cosmetics, pigments, etc.

Powder Transport Method

1. Powder transport by Express

For international express delivery of powdered goods, it is generally required to provide a testing report from an identification agency, proving that the powder is not hazardous, to facilitate air transport.

For personal shipments and sending small samples, obtaining a testing report from an identification agency is a cumbersome and time-consuming process.

However, Jike has partnered with some international express delivery couriers, so we have special channels and qualifications for the safe transport of powdered goods to foreign countries without the need for an identification report.

Precautions for the transportation of powdered goods:

  1. The packaging of powdered goods should prevent leakage, so such products should be sealed with plastic bags on the outer layer of the product to ensure that the goods will not be damaged, dispersed, or leaked during transportation and to ensure the safety of transportation.

  2. Before transportation, you need to make sure that the recipient's data information is as detailed and accurate as possible in order to avoid the risk of unnecessary loss.
