UN Labeling and Boxing

All Dangerous Goods shipments have special requirements to be safely transported, including very specific labeling which clearly identifies the material being shipped.  Most, except those in Excepted and Limited Quantities, require special packaging.

These special packages are specified by the United Nations.  They are manufactured and tested under strict quality assurance programs and are designed for the safe transport of your dangerous goods. They may be drums, jerricans, boxes, bags or composite packages, composed of a number of different materials.

UN-specified packaging can always be identified by a special code imprinted on every package.  This code begins with the stylized letters “UN” within a circle and continue with classification information which indicates the type of package, the danger level of product that it can contain, the maximum weight of the material allowed in the package, among other items.

When specified by the Packing Instruction for a given dangerous good, DGM Boston only uses properly marked and tested UN packaging materials.
