Shipping Hazardous Materials
For many hazardous materials, including chemicals, radioactive materials and biological agents, shipping is regulated domestically as “hazardous materials” by the U.S. Department of Transportation and internationally as “dangerous goods” by the International Air Transportation Association (IATA).
