Shipping Hazardous Materials Hazardous materials are shipped the most economical way possible in accordance with carrier and DOT regulations. Prices normally include packaging; however, special packing charges may be added for hazardous materials. Because of federal and international Hazmat shipping regulations, special DOT-approved shipping boxes and additional paperwork are involved in shipping all chemicals marked “HM.” For this extra handling, there is a $35 surcharge for each Hazmat ground parcel. Only one Hazmat class may be included in each parcel. If an order contains items in more than one Hazmat class, each class must go in a separate package, each with a separate Hazmat surcharge. Notes All carbon must be shipped by truck. UPS will not handle it.
