Shipping Hazardous Materials

How Do You Handle Shipping Hazardous Materials?

Shipping hazardous materials, also referred to as HAZMAT, requires special permits, equipment, and lots of training. So it’s important to find a partner that can keep up with all the chemical shipping regulations and latest safety practices. As an industry leader in fulfillment for over 54 years, our team of experts is well-equipped with the technology and processes to safely handle your HAZMAT shipping needs.

What Are Hazardous Materials For Shipping?

Many commonly shipped products contain hazardous materials, such as:

  • Cosmetics (nail polish, hair products, perfumes)
  • Building supplies (adhesives, paints, varnish, lacquer)
  • Electronics (appliances with fuel or batteries)
  • Household cleaning supplies (glass cleaner, sprays)
  • Nutraceuticals (supplements, dietary products)
  • Medical & healthcare products (iodine, first aid kits, thermometers)
  • Alternative wellness products (certain essential oils)

It’s important to work with a partner like Jay Group that is up-to-date on federal regulations and able to identify if your product falls under HAZMAT shipping requirements.

How We Handle Shipping Hazardous Materials

At Jay Group, we have a three-pronged approach to managing the transportation of hazardous materials. We invest in our people, infrastructure, and technology to ensure your product is safely delivered.

Our Training

Jay Group’s team of dangerous goods experts are continuously trained on recent laws and regulations. Bi-annually, each member also becomes re-certified by the Dangerous Goods Council. Our employees contain certifications for handling:

  • 49 CFR – Code of Federal Regulations
  • IATA – International Air Transport Association
  • IMDG – International Maritime Dangerous Goods
  • Classes 2, 3, 9 (Including Lithium Batteries)

Strategic Location For Ground Shipping

Hazardous materials typically need to be shipped via ground transportation. Shipping any other method can lead to exorbitant fees. 

Our facilities are strategically placed in Lancaster, PA and Reno, NV to ensure timely delivery. Thanks to these locations, we can reach more than 77% of the US population in 3 days via ground shipping.

Technology Designed to Support HAZMAT Shipping

Thanks to our advanced warehouse management system, we can handle HAZMAT products safely in a way that’s compliant and cost-effective for you. Our system is designed to automatically flag hazardous orders and separate them into their own workflow so they follow chemical shipping regulations. Having this separate HAZMAT-only wave ensures that proper labeling occurs.
