• Let 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.
