Shipping & Transporting Research Materials

Box and Packing Tape

We help lab researchers manage dangerous good shipping and transportation by ground, air, and sea, including chemical, radioactive, and biological materials. Our guidance helps you comply with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations, International Airline Transportation Association (IATA) guidelines, and maritime law.

Transporting certain materials may require import or export permits or other documentation from federal agencies.

An online version of the general Emergency Response Guide for your campus is also available through the Emergency Guidance Program.
