DOT Shipping


The U. S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has specific rules and regulations for shipping hazardous materials. EMT can help with determining the DOT hazard class for your shipment and provide freight services that meet all DOT safety and transportation requirements to keep you compliant. All EMT shipping containers are DOT-approved and ready for immediate use. Our Southern California DOT shipping drivers are consistently trained in the latest U.S. DOT Hazardous Materials Regulations (49 CFR 171–181), including training in General Awareness, Security Awareness, and Function-Specific. This training allows for your peace of mind as our team takes care of the rest. We’ll properly package, mark, label, load/unload, and document hazmat shipments; identify and respond to security threats; and offer placards for ground transport, and take the weight of shipping off your shoulders.
