3D Packaging Diagrams and Emergency Response Information


In addition to the necessary shipping papers , the application also features a variety of additional packaging diagrams, emergency response information and other valuable print-outs to aid the shipper in creating compliant documentation and packaging.

ShipHazmat optionally provides compliant diagrams and information on how to properly label and mark the outer packages containing Dangerous Goods.

Whether it's a single packaging, combination packaging, "all packed in one" or overpack, optional diagrams display all of the required hazard labels, handling labels, markings, U.N. specification markings and other required information on the outer packaging.

Inner packaging limitations and descriptions are also provided, when applicable, to give you a full scope of a completed, compliant package of Dangerous Goods to be shipped by air or ground.


Here are some of the optional print-outs featured:

  • Inner and outer packaging diagrams
  • Requirements for marking and labeling
  • Applicable State and Operator variations for each proper shipping name added to the shippers declaration form
  • Emergency response information for each proper shipping name
  • Truck placarding requirements for transporting Dangerous Goods from the dock facility to carrier via domestic ground transport

International Record Retention Requirements
IATA regulations specify that at least one copy of the shippers declaration form and any other documents relevant to consignment for each shipment should be retained for a minimum period of three months, or other period required by the national authorities involved in transporting the Dangerous Goods shipments by air transport. If documents are kept electronically, they should be capable of being reproduced in a printed manner (IATA DGR 1.3.4).

United States Record Retention Requirements
U.S. regulations require that each person who provides a shipping paper must retain a copy or an electronic image of the shipping paper for the period specified in 172.201(e). Shipping papers must be accessible upon request to an authorized official at reasonable times and locations.

All declarations of Dangerous Goods paperwork must be retained for a period of two years (49 CFR §172.201(e)) from the date listed on the air waybill or the declaration form.
