  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

End-to-end 3PL solutions for companies of all sizes

Approved has both the expertise and experience required to ship hazardous materials (such as gasses, corrosive chemicals, and flammable liquids) across the world.

But shipping hazardous materials requires more than just expertise — it requires certification from the government at multiple levels and along each step of the way.

Unlike many freight providers, Approved is certified to transport and warehouse hazardous freight and can help you throughout, from the preparation of materials for shipment at their point of origin to disposal at their final destination.

Safe transport of hazardous materials starts with smart planning and project management, and Approved will assign you an account manager to help you from start to finish. We have experience in securely moving cargo within all the US Department of Transportation’s hazard classes.

Best practices and common pitfalls

Whether being transported by ocean, air, or over the road, hazardous materials are not like other shipments that require “special handling” as there are regulations in place at most every level: not following these regulations to the letter can not only be dangerous, but can result in fines that can ruin a business. Nothing stifles profit like an unplanned and costly penalty.
