Dangerous Goods
 
Classification and labeling summary tables >
 
General Information
Dangerous goods, also referred to as "HAZMAT", are described as articles or substances that are capable of posing a significant risk to health, safety or property when transported by air. Most dangerous goods can be safely transported by air if they are in approved quantities and properly packaged and handled. Our acceptance of dangerous goods is in accordance with the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations and all applicable domestic and international rules and regulations. 
 
It is a violation of law to tender cargo containing dangerous goods that have not been properly declared, identified, packaged, marked, labeled, or documented to any airline. Failure to properly identify and tender a dangerous goods shipment can result in United States Department of Transportation maximum penalties of up to five years in prison and fines of $250,000 USD or more. 
 
Dangerous Goods Indicators
We ask our customers to give a complete and accurate description of the goods being shipped. Items that do not have complete descriptions are subject to additional screening. Descriptions that may require more complete information include, but are not limited to: consolidation, household goods, chemicals, cylinders, fuels, laboratory testing equipment, medical supplies, pharmaceuticals and personal effects.
