Alert! New Liquids Shipping Requirements

One of the main goals of INGENIUM is to ensure that its clients’ best interests are paramount. With extensive experience in the transportation of hazardous and non-hazardous materials, as well as hazardous and non-hazardous waste, INGENIUM has determined that certain shipping containers are more appropriate than others in certain situations.

For example, shipping liquids in open top poly drums increases the likelihood for spills due to the nature of the container and needlessly puts our clients at risk. The spill potential is greater in open head poly drums due to the fact that poly containers flex. This flexing puts additional pressure on the lids of the containers, which often results in improper sealing. This can occur at any point in time, including drum movement (loading and unloading process) and also during the normal course of transportation.

Due to this increased spill potential, INGENIUM’s policy is not to accept open top poly drums for the transportation of any liquid. If you have any concerns or questions about with this policy, please reach out to your INGENIUM Representative at 800/805-6236.

We at INGENIUM want to make sure that your best interest is taken into consideration.  We care for your world and want to make sure that we do everything in our power to protect our clients and the environment.
