Identifying Dangerous Goods
Per regulations, Northern Air Cargo is not able to assist you in identifying or classifying your materials. This is specifically the shipper’s responsibility. The manufacturer of the product will have the ability to classify a material and usually is the best source for this required information. Obtaining a copy of the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) could provide you with necessary information.
NOTICE: Effective June 1, 2019, Northern Air Cargo’s dangerous goods processing and handling fee will increase to $60 per shipment.
If you are not sure that your freight meets the criteria for dangerous goods or which dangerous goods identification and classification applies to your shipment, contact the U.S. Department of Transportation at 1 (800) 467-4922.
LITHIUM BATTERIES: As of March 22, 2016, Northern Air Cargo accepts lithium battery shipments only under the provisions of IATA. All other dangerous goods shipments will be accepted as usual under 49CFR and IATA.
Once your material is classified, if you have any questions about shipping dangerous goods with Northern Air Cargo, please call the NAC Dangerous Goods Specialists at 800-727-2141
