Items Prohibited by DPD Ireland for Shipment

DPD Ireland strives to meet the diverse needs of its clientele. Yet, to ensure the utmost safety and adherence to regulations, some items remain off the shipping list. While one understands the enthusiasm to send a range of products, there are certain limitations one must be aware of when considering dispatching through DPD Ireland.

The company’s prime concern is the health and safety of all stakeholders involved. Consequently, there are items deemed risky, causing them to fall under the ‘non-shippable’ category. Some of these include:

  • Dangerous Goods: Items classified as posing a risk to health, safety, or property during transportation.
  • Hazardous Materials: Substances that may pose short-term or long-term hazards to the environment or individuals.
  • Flammable Products: Items susceptible to catching fire under normal or slightly elevated temperatures.
  • Living Animals: For ethical and safety reasons, transporting live animals requires specialized services, which DPD Ireland doesn’t provide.
  • Perishable Foods: Foods that deteriorate quickly, posing health risks if not stored or handled correctly.
  • Monetary Instruments: This includes cash, cheques, and any vouchers that hold monetary value.
  • Precious Commodities: Jewellery, antiques, and precious metals which require specialized handling and insurance.
  • Liquids: Unsealed or non-hazardous liquids that could spill or cause damage.
  • Explicit Materials: Items that contain or promote explicit content.
