Getting it from one place to another is no easy task.

Choosing the Right.... for Your Needs

When determining the correct V-Pack size, every shipper must know:

  • The UN number of the substance/item being shipped
  • The amount of the substance/item being shipped
  • The physical dimensions and weight of the inner packaging in which the substance/item will be shipped
While the shipper is responsible for selecting the correct package, we can recommend choices according to your supplied information as prescribed by the appropriate regulations. Please refer to DOT Title 49 CFR, ICAO/IATA and IMDG Code regulations to determine authorization for use.
