AC Cargo then sent us detailed instructions on the shipping procedure. First step: we had to undergo a Dangerous Goods inspection. This was performed by a separately-contracted company called DGM, which was located a few kms outside Malpensa Airport. We needed to drop the bike off 24 hours before the flight, so we did the DG inspection right before we went to the cargo warehouse. At the facility where the DG inspection was performed Thankfully Neda spoke Italian because the guy who performed the inspection didn't speak a lot of English. He had us empty all of our panniers and dry bags and did a *very* thorough inspection of the contents. Because of several recent in-flight incidences, there are new airline regulations which prohibit the use of rechargeable batteries in cargo. We thought we had removed all of these batteries, but it seemed we missed a few: the battery in my GoPro camera, camping headlight and portable speakers. All of those had to be removed and placed in our carry-on. As mentioned before, the inspection was surprisingly *very* thorough. It seems that the Dangerous Goods Certification company is liable for any cargo fires that start because they missed a combustible item. Took a while, but we finally passed DG inspection! This is our DG Certficate.
