Can dangerous goods be carried by any means of transport?

No, a distinction is made between road and rail transport on the one hand, and air transport on the other.

For example, a lithium phone battery can only be carried by plane or lorry, not by train. So you need to check the destination country, as some accept lithium batteries in S-M-L shipments but not in an XL-XXL parcel.

POST Luxembourg will only carry batteries for direct dispatches, i.e. direct urgent shipments.
