BASCO's Hazardous Materials Shipping Containers

Due to security precautions in recent years, shipping materials that are considered hazardous has become increasingly difficult. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), activated in 1979, serves as the federal agency that carries out various functions of disaster assistance and civil defense for the country during any time of need such as a natural disaster, threat against security, large-scale leak, oil spill or other crisis. FEMA has also served as the America's hazardous material (hazmat) regulator since the induction of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986. 

According to FEMA, hazmats are "solids, liquids, or gases that can harm people, other living organisms, property, or the environment," and hazmats must be regulated because, "hazards can occur during production, storage, transportation, use, or disposal [of these hazardous materials]." So what do you do as a company owner when you have to ship hazardous materials across the United States and the world with the strict regulations of hazmats from FEMA and the United Nations (UN)? 

At BASCO, we design our products with the end result in mind. We supply all of your industrial packaging needs, including our variety of hazmat shipping containers, which are certified to meet UN and UPS requirements. By designing our products with the end result in mind—meaning you and your customers—we consider your needs as our client and the needs of your customers as your client.  Through our design process, we expunge all unnecessary aspects of the container products we design and focus solely on the aspects you and your clients will require, such as safety, cleanliness, and quality. We strive to exceed your expectations for shipping containers with our diverse selection of container products, including our certified hazmat material shipping products

If you are struggling to find the proper container products or shipping materials including plastic pails, paint pails, 55 gallon drums, shipping boxes, or hazmat shipping containers, let BASCO help you find the best product available. Contact BASCO at 800.776.3786.
