General Requirements

DOT states that no person may offer or accept a hazardous material for transportation in commerce unless that person is trained in conformance with 49 CFR and the hazardous material is properly classed, described, packaged, marked, labeled, and in condition for shipment as required or authorized by applicable requirements of 49 CFR. 

UPS, however, imposes other general requirements on you as a contract hazardous materials shipper.

You must ensure that the material offered for shipment is neither "forbidden" nor "prohibited" from transportation. See the restrictions listed in the UPS chemical table for each material you plan to ship. "Forbidden" means that the DOT will not allow the transport of the material; "prohibited" or "not accepted" means that UPS will not transport that specific material due to safety concerns related to the "conditions incident to UPSĀ“s transportation system."

UPS allows a maximum of three chemically compatible materials in one package.

Know exactly what you are shipping. If in doubt, don't ship!

If you have any questions about shipping hazardous materials with UPS, please call the UPS Hazardous Materials Support Center at 1-800-554-9964.
