Packaging for sending limited quantities of dangerous goods
Limited Quantities are dangerous goods that – when presented in smaller quantities – have a reduced risk of harm to people, animals, property or the environment. This reduced risk allows for limited quantity shipments to be sent without extensively approved UN packaging.
However the packaging used must be capable of withstanding packaging tests as outlined in UN dangerous goods regulations for air, road and sea. We ensure that all our LQ packagings are tested and fully compliant with Air, Sea and Road DG regulations.
If you reduce the quality of the packaging used for shipping limited quantities, you also reduce the number of options for transportation; a number of airline operators forbid limited quantities from being shipped in packaging unless UN approved.
If you are unsure about whether or not you can ship your dangerous goods in limited quantities, feel free to get in touch with us and we will do our best to advise and assist with your query.
Here you will also find our available limited quantity hazard labels.
