DATE: 12/11/09

Whether you’re shipping hazardous materials domestically or internationally, the shipping company you choose to handle the delivery is of the utmost importance. You want to make sure you choose an experienced shipping company who will ensure your shipment is in compliance with all laws and properly packed to reach its destination safely. Here are a few questions to ask when choosing a company for shipping hazardous materials.
• How long have you been shipping hazardous materials? Shipping hazardous materials is a highly specialized practice that few shipping companies are qualified to do. It requires expertise and care to ensure everyone is kept safe throughout the entire process. Make sure you choose a shipping company that has several years of proven experience handling hazardous materials shipments.
• Do you employ certified hazmat agents? When shipping hazardous materials, you’re probably going to have a few questions. It’s important that the shipping company employs certified hazmat agents who can guide you through this process.
• Can you help me complete the required documentation? Hazardous materials shipments require that extra documentation be completed. For a shipper, knowing which documentation needs to be completed and how to complete it can be a bit confusing. Make sure you work with a shipping company who can give you a helping hand to ensure all documentation is filled out properly. If you have any questions about shipping hazardous materials, please contact Amerijet today.
