Courier Service

Hazardous Materials Packaging and Transportation Service

To better serve the NCI scientific community, a Hazardous Materials Courier service has been established for users of the Frederick National Lab Advanced Technology Program (ATP). By utilizing the courier to transport potentially hazardous chemical, biological or radiological materials, RTP users are assured of compliance with federal transportation laws. Our couriers are certified in all aspects of hazardous shipping and meet all U.S. Department of Transportation and international requirements. In operating this service, the Frederick National Lab assumes all liability for the transport of dangerous goods between NIH-Bethesda and the Frederick National Lab. The courier service can be scheduled by completing the Frederick National Lab's Request for Shipment form. This form must be submitted electronically and printed, signed and faxed to the Environment, Health and Safety Program at 301-846-6269 at least 24 hours prior to the day of shipment. Upon receipt of the authorized form, the courier will pick up, package, label and deliver your samples with appropriate documentation to the designated laboratory. The fee for this service is $30 per package.

All shipments must comply fully with federal and state laws that govern the transport of hazardous materials. Noncompliance with applicable regulations may be subject to legal penalties.
