These materials can degrade and become harmful during transit. They can also have a detrimental and irreversible effect on the ecosystem they are entering into.
E.g. Food, perishable items, organic and industrial waste, plants and seeds

E.g. Agricultural equipment, vehicles, furniture, carpet rolls
