New Rules from Fedex Ground for Hazmat Shipments

Posted on 7/26/2011 by James Griffin

If you’ve ever tried to ship hazmat overnight, you probably know that Fedex does not accept any shipments of dangerous goods unless you first let them give you a once-over and approve your shipping procedures.
 
You may not know that “effective August 1, 2011, FedEx Ground will require all hazardous materials paperwork to be completed and submitted electronically.”
 
This electronic submission can be through either:
 
  • One of FedEx’s electronic shipping solutions,
  • A compatible electronic system from a third-party vendor, or
  • A customized program that can transmit hazmat shipping information to FedEx.
 
For more information on shipping hazardous materials with FedEx, see its Dangerous Goods Info page.

Lion - Quotes

These are the best classes I attend each year. I always take something away and implement improvements at my sites.

Kim Racine

EH&S Manager

Lion courses are the standard to which all other workshops should strive for!

Brody Saleen

Registered Environmental Health Specialist

Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.

Ellen Pelton

Chemical Laboratory Manager

Very well structured, comprehensive, and comparable to live training seminars I've participated in previously. I will recommend the online course to other colleagues with training requirement needs.

Neil Luciano

EHS Manager

Excellent. I learned more in two days with Lion than at a 5-day program I took with another provider.

Francisco Gallardo

HES Technician

The instructor was very engaging and helped less experienced people understand the concepts.

Steve Gall

Safety Leader

I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.

Danny Province

EHS Professional

I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.

Nicole Eby

Environmental Specialist

The instructor was very very informative, helpful, understandable and pleasant. This course answered many questions I had, being new to this industry.

Best course instructor I've ever had. Funny, relatable, engaging; made it interesting and challenged us as the professionals we are.
