Why Trust CARGOpak with Your Hazardous Materials Shipping?
May 17, 2021

Regulations by the U.S. Dept. of Transportation and other bodies make shipping hazardous materials (hazmat) highly complex. At the same time, your company must ensure that staff and people at the destination are not exposed to any leakages or direct contact.

Some businesses overcome this by finding an experienced partner to train and advise them on their hazmat handling and shipping.

We are confident in saying that, for you, CARGOpak is the ideal partner.

Here are unbeatable reasons why.

1. We’re extensively skilled at handling different types of hazmat

You might be among the specialized cargo companies that ship only certain materials, meaning you only need to stay updated and compliant with a narrow set of regulations. Conversely, you could be shipping different types of cargo, making it necessary to adhere to different regulations at the same time.

Whichever category you fall into, one of CARGOpak’s core strengths is that we have the expertise to help.

We can help you with understanding regulations for materials that are:

  • Radioactive
  • Flammable (liquid and solid)
  • Oxidizers
  • Oxygen-containing
  • Corrosive
  • Poisonous
  • Blasting agents

2. Access training and support in a variety of convenient ways

Working with CARGOpak, you can receive training in different ways, depending on what you find most convenient.

We offer:

On-site classes

These are our most effective means of giving shipping personnel a strong grasp of the regulations they’re expected to follow.

Our in-person training classes benefit from being adapted to each site your business operates in. And this means we can focus on the regulations that are most relevant to you.

Online webinars

You and your team may also access training through high-quality, frequently updated webinars. Topics of interest that we explore include lithium batteries, biological substances, and consumer goods.

If you have a large enough team or project underway, we provide customized webinar training that focuses on your needs. While these can be pre-recorded, your team has the option to view them live and interact with instructors for stronger comprehension.

3. Achieve regulatory compliance for all the territories you serve

CARGOpak makes it possible to understand and adhere to regulations from both the U.S. Dept. of Transportation and other bodies across the world.

Instead of just making sure you’re compliant for all materials you ship, as covered in (1), we also make certain that you’re equipped to adapt as those regulations change with each jurisdiction.

When relevant, we help freight companies like yours understand and adhere to regulations and bodies such as:

  • International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)
  • International Air Transport Association (IATA)
  • Dangerous goods regulations (DGR)
  • International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code)

4. Lock in long-term compliance with experience-backed consulting

Possibly, you don’t have dedicated personnel who handle the dangerous goods you ship, creating risks of failed dangerous goods (DG) compliance.

CARGOpak’s customized consulting can be of significant help to you in this position. Bringing to bear more than 30 years of hazardous materials experience, we guide you toward safe handling and compliance.

Ensure compliance with hazmat regulations by working with CARGOpak
