The IMDG form is an informative yet simple document. Filling one out correctly can help reduce complications and timing issues for your D/G cargo. Down below, we have some examples as well as a guide for your reference.

First we have the Multimodal DG form. This form needs Microsoft Excel to run correctly. It provides interactive roll over cells that have information regarding the form and how to fill it out. It is a great reference for anyone who deals with dangerous goods.
