Dangerous Goods

Let it be known Turner's Express does NOT provide "Dangerous Goods" or "Hazardous Material" services. We will, however, accept dry ice and bio-medical materials.

Dry ice shipments - prepared in accordance with IATA regulations - do not require a Shipper's Declaration, and there is no special handling fee for transporting dry ice at this time. However, dry ice must be   specified when placing an order. All dry ice shipments require package marking and labeling. Turner’s Express is not required to add dry ice to packages in our system.

Blood, urine, fluids, and other liquid diagnostic specimens containing infectious substances, are considered "Dangerous Goods". Non-infectious blood, urine, fluids, and other liquid diagnostic specimens must be packed to meet specific applicable local, state and federal laws.

Shippers must also comply with all applicable local, state and federal laws governing packing, marking and labeling of shipments of blood and blood-related products regardless of whether they are infectious.

Any package/delivery with an odor or any package that is wet or leaking will NOT be accepted for carriage. If a shipment damages or contaminates any property, the shipper will be held responsible and will reimburse Turner’s Express for any and/or all costs, fees and expenses incurred in connection with such damage or contamination.

Turner’s Express reserves the right to refuse "Dangerous Goods" or any questionable materials at any location where they cannot be accepted in accordance with applicable law.

If customer(s) knowingly conceal "Dangerous Goods" in any form of packages for transport by Turner's Express, the Federal Authorities will be notified immediately.

The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) regulates the movement of "Dangerous Goods" by all modes of transportation. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is a branch of the DOT that oversees "Dangerous Goods" shipments by air. When Turner’s Express encounter’s improperly declared or undeclared shipment of "Dangerous Goods", we are required by law to report the packages to the DOT. Penalties for such shipments can range up to $500,000 and five years in jail.
