Regulatory compliance with dangerous goods, at all times

Regulatory compliance with dangerous goods, at all times

DATE: 02/24/17

Small businesses need to ship thousands of products every year. The process can go from routine to complex if any of the items being shipped get classified as hazardous material. That term alone can set off alarm bells for small businesses that don’t have experience packaging and labeling these products for air transport.
Amerijet understands those concerns, and has a dedicated team of experts to help businesses understand how to ship hazardous material by air.
Hazardous material is anything that’s potentially flammable or explosive, even if the risks of that happening seem very low. Items classified as hazardous range from acids to chemicals. However, everyday items such as laptops or perfumes are considered hazardous material depending on the quanties being shipped. The list of potentially hazardous products is far longer than many people may think.
As a shipper it is important to let your air carrier know exactly what you are shipping, so that your shipment complies with all government regulations. Amerijet’s team of experts will guide you on how to properlay ship and declare these products. Let us take the guesswork out of shipping your freight.
Amerijet has more than 40 years of experience making the safe transport of cargo our top priority. We are the experts in getting your packages — including the ones classified as hazardous — to their final destination in a fast, efficient and safe contained manner.
Our goal is to exceed our customers’ expectations and streamline the entire process for you.
