To most people, dangerous goods are hazardous and hazardous goods are dangerous — there is no difference. But, when it comes to transporting them, there are differences and they do require separate treatment.
The same goes for general goods, which can simply be treated as anything that isn’t dangerous or hazardous. However, even general goods may need to be handled in a certain way — they may be frozen produce or carried at ambient temperature, they can be bulk items such as grain or coal, or they may be high value, fragile items that have to be treated with great care.
