Myth #3

Packing companies are certified by the government to package Dangerous Goods for shippers

This is not true. Packing companies do not have any more or any less authority than anyone else to sign shippers declarations or pack hazmat shipments.

Anyone can do it, without any approvals, as long as they have the proper training and do it correctly!

Tips when using hazmat packing companies:

In most situations hazmat will have to be packed on your dock by the packing company. You are not allowed to “offer” a hazmat shipment for highway transport unless you are trained and the shipment is properly prepared for transport.

This is VERY important. If you are untrained and you put freight on a truck to ship to a packing company so that they can do the DGD, you are violating the law. Don’t do it.
