Hazardous Shipping

How can I ship my diesel fuel, biodiesel, and fuel oil samples?

Diesel fuel, biodiesel, and fuel oil samples can be shipped (non-hazardous) via UPS, provided the flash point is greater than 140⁰F. Most diesel fuel oils meet this requirement. Biodiesel and diesel fuel oils with flashpoints above 140⁰F do not fall under the hazmat shipping regulations and can be shipped without any hazardous labels.

To be certain you are in compliance with 49 CFR 100-185 hazardous material shipping rules, KMT can provide flash point analysis by ASTM D93.

Diesel shipping exception:

hazmat hazardous shipping

For diesel fuel oils that have a flashpoint below 140⁰F, up to 64 lbs. of diesel fuel can be packaged in a single shipment as long as the fuel is packaged in separate 1 fluid oz. containers. This exception is found in 49 CFR 173.4. The outside of the package must have the following marking: “This package conforms to 49 CFR 173.4 for domestic highway or rail transport only”, the package is not considered hazardous and can shipped ground from any UPS location.

Please review 49 CFR 173.4 for compliance with packaging and shipping requirements.
